The city of Auburn has announced the winners of its 54th annual Veterans Parade & Observance on Nov. 9.

An all-veteran panel of three judges took on the task of deciding the winners out of the 200 entries, of which included military entries, ROTC units, veteran service organizations and numerous bands.

There are six award categories, with the most prestigious award being the General’s Award – Best in parade.

This year’s winners:

General’s Award – Best in Parade

#139 – Grants Pass Marching Band & Color Guard

Admiral’s Award – Best Military Entry

Veteran’s Award – Best Non-Motorized Entry

#145 – 2nd Connecticut Regiment of Militia

Mayor’s Award – Best Musical or Drill Entry

The Curb Competition was created in 2010 as a way for groups/organizations that do not fit the parade criteria, to still participate in the event and honor veterans and active military personnel.

Award winners are:

• Best Curb Appeal – EZ-Access

• Most Patriotic – Knights of Columbus

Save the date for next year’s event, which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020. For additional information, visit auburnwa.gov/events or call 253-931-3043.
