The Veterans Day Parade through Portland, ME began at Longfellow Square. Approximately eight blocks of scattered candy and wind-blown leaflets later, the event culminated outside of City Hall where leaders of town and state offered speeches to the crowd. Some citizens brought sweater-clad pets, others brought protest signs, but Congress Street was lined for blocks with people in some way commemorating the holiday.
