2019 Armed Forces Day Parade Continues its Tradition

This year marked the 72nd consecutive year of the parade

Saturday marked the 72nd Armed Forces Day Parade and the community flocked to the streets of downtown Bremerton once again to honor our military, first responders, youth organizations and commercial businesses.

Some of Kitsap County’s most recognizable elected officials were also in attendance including Representative Derek Kilmer and Bremerton Mayor Greg Wheeler. The parade Grand Marshal was once again Admiral James Caldwell, who serves as director of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program.

The reoccurring Bremerton Central Lions Breakfast preceded the parade as folks enjoyed a hearty breakfast in the sunshine that included pancakes, eggs, sausage and coffee.

Some of the notable groups in the parade included the Bremerton Police Department, Bremerton Fire Department, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, USS Carl Vinson and Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division, Keyport.

Youth groups included multiple school marching bands from the area as well as Miss Kitsap, Miss Poulsbo and Miss Silverdale. Entries came as far away as Oregon and Spokane to participate in the event.
