Welcome Home Veterans Celebration

  

 Join us September 13-17, 2017 for a multi-day Celebration and Annual Welcome Home Parade 

Originally created to honor Vietnam Veterans, this is now a tribute by Vietnam Veterans to all American Heroes. This is a day for families, friends and all citizens to salute the service and sacrifices made by America’s Military. Join our special guests as every branch of the service is recognized – every man and women who served will be honored.
