South Boston, VA-- Folks in South Boston spent part their Saturday morning honoring those who served our country.

They held their annual Veterans Day Parade downtown.

Dozens of businesses and organizations took part, including people from the American Legion, Girl Scouts and the Halifax County High School choir.

At the end of the parade, residents met at Constitution Square for a brief ceremony.

South Boston Town Manger, Ted Daniel, and a guest speaker addressed the importance of celebrating our veterans.

 "All the stuff that veterans have to go through, they need to be honored greatly for our nation, they are the strength of our nation for keeping us safe in every way," said parade organizer Cary Ford.

After the parade, many veterans headed over to American Legion Post 99 for a free lunch.
