TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - This year's Veterans Day Parade is back on in Vigo County.

Earlier this week, News 10 was the first report the annual Veterans Day Parade was canceled.

After that report, people living in Terre Haute decided something needed to be done.

"I know when I was a kid I loved seeing the military and the veterans in the parade and I think that should continue," John Higgins, Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association said. 

On Friday, a group of mostly veterans gathered at Grand Traverse Pie Company to work out a way to make sure the parade happened. 

They said having the parade is not the only tradition, it's the least the community can do to pay respects to those who have fought for our freedom.

"We will never forget our fellow veterans. What they've done for us," Mike Egy, with Loyal Veterans Battalion said. "Some have given the ultimate sacrifice to allow us to continue to live free and there's no greater way to honor them than with this parade.

The parade is set to happen on Veterans Day, November 11 at 10:00 a.m. in downtown Terre Haute.

If you would like to volunteer or be apart of the Veterans Day Parade there are a few ways you can do that.
