The Goldsboro Veterans Day Parade will be 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, starting on South Center Street.

The route will run from South Center Street, up to the traffic circle and back down the other side of Center Street, where it will then turn right onto Walnut Street and then left onto James Street.

The grand marshal will be the new commander of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base's 4th Fighter Wing, Col. Mark Kelly.

Mike Burris, president of the Wayne County Veterans and Patriots Coalition, is urging everyone to attend.

"Everybody should come out and give the new wing commander a good Wayne County welcome," Burris said. "We've got lots of entries. Hopefully it will be bigger than last year's, and last year's was good."
