Take Metro to the Veterans Day Parade in downtown St. Louis this Saturday, and recognize and celebrate the brave men and women who have served our country.
The Veterans Day 5K Run and Parade will be held on Saturday, November 11. The 5K and one mile runs will start at 9 a.m. at 13th Street and Market. The Veterans Day Parade begins at noon, and will travel west from 13th Street and Market toward Union Station at 20th Street.
Metro makes it easy to enjoy the festivities this weekend. You can park at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and take MetroLink to the Civic Center MetroLink Station for easy access to the parade route or to the race starting line. MetroBus is another great option with more than a dozen MetroBus routes serving stops near the parade area.
Be advised that several MetroBus routes will be rerouted on Saturday due to the race and the parade, including the #4 Natural Bridge, #10 Gravois-Lindell, #11 Chippewa, #19 St. Louis Ave, #32 ML King, #40 N. Broadway, #41 Lee, #74 Florissant, #94 Page, #96 Market Street Shuttle, #97 Delmar and the #99 Downtown Trolley.
