COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Downtown Columbia hosted its 43rd annual Veterans Day Parade on Thursday.

The Veterans Day Parade, known as one of the southeast’s largest Veterans Day parades, took place at 11 a.m. from the intersection of Sumter and Laurel streets.

It traveled southbound on Sumter Street ending at Pendleton Street near the State House.

This year’s grand marshals were representatives from the South Carolina National Guard.

The Veterans Day Parade was sponsored by the City of Columbia, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of South Carolina, WIS, USC and Cocky, the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, Fort Jackson, Year of the Veteran Truck, and the USO.

Below is our live-streamed coverage from the parade:

Susan McPherson, the vice president of Public Polity and Military Affairs with the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, along with Kim Mitchell, the special events coordinator for the City of Columbia, joined WIS TV Midday to invite viewers to line the parade route dressed in their patriotic colors.
