Veterans Day events in Lexington pay tribute to military veterans and to the town’s military history. The holiday marks the anniversary of the November 11, 1918 signing of the Armistice, the agreement to end the fighting phase of World War I, once called the “war to end all wars.”

The Lexington History Hunt, new to the town’s celebration of Veterans Day this year, invites kids aged 8 – 12 to discover the many ways Lexington has served the country through a series of questions that require investigating the town’s history. Lexington History Hunt questions and participant instructions are available at Cary Library’s Children’s Room and the Tourist Center by November 1. Participants who answer the most questions correctly will be recognized at the Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11.
