It’s almost time! After a two-year hiatus, the 7th Annual Los Banos Veterans Parade is happening this Saturday, Nov. 5, at 11 a.m.

 You will want to get to the parade route early to secure a good spot. You won’t want to miss seeing the, more than 60, entries that will be honoring our Veterans.

This year’s theme is “Salute to the Navy” and that is what the eleven Los Banos schools will focus on as they compete in the “2022 Most Patriotic School Contest.” Let’s make this the best turn-out ever and show our veterans that their service and sacrifice are appreciated!

To assist the public in knowing where the street closures for the Veterans Parade will be, a map has been provided.

The map as well as instructions for those participating in the parade can also be found on our website, at, under the Veterans Parade tab.
