The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is coming to Pinellas County.
The Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance is bringing the 6-foot-tall scale model of the Washington, DC, monument through Largo and several other cities on Thursday, Nov. 1.
The memorial will travel by motorcade with an escort from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, more than 100 veteran bikers and several military bikers, organizers said. The motorcade will pass nine local elementary schools, along with other government buildings, businesses and neighborhoods.
It's expected to be making its way through Largo between 11 and 11:30 a.m. Thursday on its way to its final stop in Clearwater, where it will be on display in Coachman Park beginning at noon Friday. A Veterans Appreciation Day event is also planned for noon Saturday at Clearwater High School.
