Vietnam veterans are gearing up for a very special week-end. Veterans from around the state and the nation will serve as grand marshals for the 4th annual Zippity Doo-Dah Parade.
Boss queen, Jill Conner Browne says this is one way to honor those who fought for our country.
In the three years, we've raised over 260,000 dollars for Batson and we're thrilled about that," said Brown. "We always have a grand marshal, of course. So this year, all Vietnam veterans are the grand marshals. So some will actually ride in the parade and others will watch in the VIP viewing areas. So we are honoring them. The money goes to Batson.
The Zippity Doo-Dah Parade will be Saturday night at 7 in the Fondren District.
