  TOMS RIVER – The 2021 Ocean County Veterans Day Parade will be still be held on Veterans Day, November 11 in downtown Toms River. However, the time of the parade has been moved from 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

  A township official said that the change was made to accommodate school children who are watching, and bands who are performing. There is a shortage of school bus drivers, so in order to get the kids there, the time had to be changed.

  The parade begins at the Toms River Shopping Center on Route 37, proceeding south on Main Street (Route 166) and then east onto Washington Street. The parade will feature numerous military vehicles, elected officials, civic groups, first responders, local high school marching bands and a showcase of vintage cars.
