Veterans Day Ceremony at Byrd Park Carillon on November 11, 2011

This is a good time to head out to the Byrd Park Carillon–in addition to the fact that the ceremony honors our nation’s veterans, Veterans Day is one of the few times of the year that the Carillon is played.

The 2011 Veterans Day Ceremony starts at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, November 11. The event will include an invocation from Reverend Angelyn Poe, a concert on the Carillon bells by City carillonneur Larry Robinson, vocal selections by the Cantare Choir of the Greater Richmond Children’s Choir, and the presentation of a memorial wreath in honor of the Nation’s veterans.

The Byrd Park is located at 1300 Blanton Ave, Richmond.
