The parade proceeds west on Main from E Street to A Street Southwest/Northwest near Auburn City Hall and will go on for two and a half hours.
"The Auburn parade is the largest of its kind on this side of the Mississippi," Evans said.
There will be nearly 6,000 parade participants, more than 25 marching bands, as well as local Junior ROTC units, honor guards, mili- tary units and antique military vehicles.
"During this parade, the Highline Veterans Services are honoring Gold Star families by walking with them while hold- ing banners of fallen service members," Evans said.
Gold Star families are the relatives of U.S. military members who died in battle. Highline Veterans Services has been helping in the parade for two years.
