The City of Torrance is known for its rich history in honoring the men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. This year, due to the fluid uncertainties of the ongoing pandemic, the City must once again postpone the 61st Annual Armed Forces Day Parade and Celebration. Instead, the City will celebrate Torrance’s long-standing tradition of honoring and thanking our nation’s service members with a Patriotic Concert in the Park. The alternative event, while smaller in scale will retain the same patriotic spirit of a full celebration.
The City of Torrance invites you to help honor our United States Armed Forces by participating in this year’s events and activities:
