For Veterans Day, the city will be honoring our veterans with decorated signs and a video message, and we invite all veterans to come see the signs and watch the video. 

The video tribute is a compilation of community messages to veterans that will be featured on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11, on the Surprise TV cable channel, our Parks & Recreation social media pages (Facebook and Instagram), and the City of Surprise website at

In addition, anyone can drive along Bullard Ave. near Surprise Stadium to see signs lining the roadway with messages of gratitude submitted by the community for our military men and women. You can see those beginning Tuesday, November 10 through Thursday, November 12 until 5 p.m.  

We want to thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice, and our community for the outpouring of love for our heroes this Veterans Day.
