Default Veteran's Day Parade Decorations

I'm doing the Veteran's Day Parade in Bowling Green, KY in conjuction with museum's Vets N Vets event. Anyone do this parade before and does anyone decorate their cars for this parade? I'll be there in my MR Coupe. I know what to do for a Christmas parade as I did two of those last year, but Veteran's Day is an unknown for decor. Advice?

No one has done a Veteran's Day Parade before?

I've driven my 64 in the country's largest Veteran's Day Parade in Branson, MO. Some 40,000 Vets in town for the week.

Normally have around two dozen Vettes(Tri-Lakes Corvette Club) in the parade and the only decorations are small American Flags flown from windshield area.

Just did Vettes to Vets in Mass and all 378 vettes displayed small American and Canadian flags only.

I didn't know what to expect for the Veteran's Day parade as far as decorations, therefore the question. I didn't want to be the only one to show up with nothing on my car but will look in the museum to see if they have anything. Thanks again!

US Flag and MIA/POW flag would be appropriate

Hi! Does anyone have any suggestions for decorating my Vette for a Christmas parade? My grandson and the little girl that won the Calender Girl pageant will be riding on back (it's a convertible) Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Yes. You can use suction cups and string up either battery led's or use a small inverter and run 110v. Just be careful to not damage your paint surface.
