QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Final preparations are being made on Friday for Quincy's Veterans Parade, which takes place Saturday morning.

This will be the 10th annual Veterans Parade in downtown Quincy. Organizers hope for a big crowd to support our veterans.They said it's a great event for all ages to enjoy. 

"We have some special events this year," said Scott Thoele the incoming chairman for the parade committee. "We hope to have a C-130 fly over from the Illinois Air National Guard with a big transport plane. So, if that all comes together it's always a great event to see that airplane fly over."

The parade steps off at 10 on Saturday morning at 12th and Maine and ending at 5th and Maine.
