Hartford — The organizers of the “2013 Connecticut Veterans Parade” are looking for U.S. veterans, businesses, organizations and individuals who want to be a part of the 14th annual procession at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, near the Capitol Building.
The parade will take place one week before the federal observance of Veterans Day. Last year more than 3,500 people marched or rode in the parade.
