El Campo ISD is offering area veterans or active duty personnel free admission to the Bi-District playoff game against Yates Thursday night. All veterans are also welcome to participate in the district veterans parade that morning.

Tickets to the 7 p.m. football game at Ricebird Stadium are for the veteran only. “Anyone accompanying an honoree must purchase a ticket to attend the game,” ECISD spokesperson Valerie Coffman said.

Those wanting to participate in the parade should gather at the El Campo Civic Center parking lot by no later than 8:45 a.m. Thursday.

Starting at 9 a.m. the parade will travel to each El Campo ISD school campus and end after passing in front of St. Philip Catholic School.

Veterans can decorate their vehicles, but are asked to stay inside them during the parade. Parents who are not military veterans or active duty personnel are asked to not drive in the parade.

For more information, please contact Toya Matthews at Hutchins Elementary, 979-543-5481.

Louise ISD will have a Veterans Day observance at 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 11 in the High School Gym. All veterans are invited to attend.
