Wreath laying ceremonies and other events took place across the state today in honor of Veterans Day, including in North Kingstown where, the community celebrated with a parade.
Hundreds of people turned out to watch the procession, and celebrate local troops. In addition to marching bands and community groups, politicians were also on parade as members of the state congressional delegation marched by.
On the other side of the state from Bristol, the irreverent Ancients and Horribles parade made its way through Chepachet. Gov. Lincoln Chafee was there, so were Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, Senator Jack Reed and Congressman Jim Langevin. They lead the parade, which included floats making political statements about Obamacare and genetically modified foods. There were also veterans, clowns, marching bands and a stream of fire trucks.
