Armed Forces Appreciation Day-Saturday, August 28, 2010

Join us as we celebrate and pay tribute to the Armed Forces and our diverse community. Entertainment, great food, craft vendors, military displays, and cultural displays reflecting the diversity that makes up our armed forces.

American Heroes
The entertainment lineup for AFAD is going to be fabulous! We've signed Taylor Hicks, Alabama native, soulful rocker, and American Idol winner in 2005, Kimberley Locke, "One Love Live", American Idol finalist (2003), "1964, The Tribute" (The #1 Beatles Show on Earth" - as described by Rolling Stone magazine), and the Full Spectrum Jazz Ensemble from the US Air Force Reserve Band. Click here for more information about our entertainers.

"Hall of Heroes"
We are honored to bring to our area real-life heroes from several of America's most storied conflicts. They will appear in our "Hall of Heroes" at the AFAD event. Several of them were profiled in HBO's epic mini-series "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific." This is your chance to meet them in person and get autographs as well as the story of their exploits from the original source.

We'll also have several of our "Local Heroes," who live in this area and have great stories to tell from their military exploits. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet all these brave veterans.
