64th Annual Albany, NY
Albany, NY - 11/11/2019
|Mission applies to the following Region(s):||Region 4, Region 5|
|About the Mission:||Once again, Albany Veterans Day organizers have requested that the Patriot Guard Riders participate in the City of Albany’s Annual Veterans Day Parade. This year’s Parade will be held on Monday, November 11, in downtown Albany, NY. Parade will step off at 11:00 am and will proceed down Central Ave to Washington Ave to the reviewing stand on the steps of the NYS Education Building.
One word - FLAGS !! - This is a great opportunity to fly the Flag. A motorcycle parade with flags flying is a sight to behold. Now the parade is walk speed so if you can, attach your flag to your bike that can withstand the rigors of walk speed then please do so - heavy duty zip ties will work wonders in attaching poles to your bikes - so give this some consideration. Any flag size will do - the bigger the better - 3' x 5' is the usual flag size we fly.
While in parade formation, don't be shy about making "a little noise" - we ride motorcycles - let the people see and HEAR us. As usual, when we get to the reviewing stand we will salute the Grand Marshall and let the reviewing stand "hear and feel the thunder".

While Central Ave is open until about 10:30am, early arrivals will park on the North side of Central, West of Partridge, near Security Supply, out of the way of any traffic. Once Central Ave is closed PGR will take up our spot - two abreast on the yellow center line of Central Ave beginning just West of Partridge Ave.

Patriot Guard Riders will be the last organization in the Parade – saving the best for last.
