“The City of Alpharetta and the American Legion Post 201 will hold the 56th Annual Old Soldiers Day Parade. The parade is just one way that our country’s war veterans are recognized for the service. The Old Soldiers Day Parade began years ago as a tribute to veterans of the war between the states, but was discontinued after a few years.Twenty–eight years later, in 1952, a small group of men in Alpharetta re-dedicated Old Soldiers Day Parade in Alpharetta and started having a parade through downtown Alpharetta. Thanks to these few men and their belief in keeping this memorable tradition alive, this parade has become an annual celebration to all veterans of all wars.” — City of Alpharetta website
