You deserve a parade!
Calling all veterans and active duty military to join us in the 2022 Nisei Week Parade on Sunday August 14, 2022. This is a great opportunity to meet other veterans and to be a part of a community tradition which was started when the Nisei Soldiers of WWII marched in the parade when Nisei Week was resumed after WWII. They were later joined by veterans of the Korean War, Vietnam War and a growing group of veterans from more recent conflicts. This year, regardless of when or where you served, or are serving, we will all march together.
Formation for the Parade usually starts at 3:00pm but get there early and join the Veterans Memorial Court Alliance for some food and refreshments at their hospitality room on the second floor of the JACCC (244 S. San Pedro St). It will be open for you and your families from 10:30am to 2:30 pm. Your early arrival will help you deal with traffic and the very limited parking. You can also visit the Japanese American National War Memorial Court at the JACCC which honors the almost 1200 Japanese Americans who were killed in action in over a century of service to our country. Information on the parade is available on the Nisei Week website or you may email Ken Hayashi at email@example.com
