The City of Homestead recently held its first Veteran’s Day Celebration to honor the nation’s heroes and provide an evening of entertainment and celebration for the whole community. The inaugural Veteran’s Day Celebration took place at Losner Park.

The Veteran’s Day Celebration was a free, family-friendly event that was open to the community. Attendees of all ages enjoyed activities and food and supported local vendors.

Military members received special discounts at the food trucks as a token of appreciation for their service. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) offered beer and wine as a fundraiser. The event featured a performance by the South Florida Youth Symphony with a fireworks finale.

The City hosted the event in partnership with Kiwanis International, the Tourism Advisory Committee and the Cybrarium.
