Ellis County Veterans Celebration (Ceremony)

Date: Nov 11, 2023
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:15 PM
Event Description:
The Ellis County Veterans Celebration is a 23rd Annual musical tribute to all Veterans for their service and sacrifices to our great Country. Locals Perry Giles and David Hudgins created this ceremony in 2000 and it has continued to grow ever since. There are NO speeches or rants, just music put to a picture slideshow, reflecting the great legacy that our military veterans have developed over the years. People tend to come from other parts of Texas, from other states, and in some cases from other countries to see this magnificent and powerful ceremony. Something is always changed every year to make it different than the last.

Sequence of Events:
1) Refreshments are provided in the Crape Myrtle Room - By 9:00 am
2) Classic Swing Band - Begins playing at 9:30 am
3) Ceremony Begins - Promptly at 10:00 am
4) Ceremony Ends (Indoors) - Roughly 11:55 am
5) Memorial Service Begins (Outside) - At the Ellis County Memorial, at 12:00 pm (including a military style flyover) - this only lasts roughly 5 minutes and is within easy walking distance.
