Salute Our Heroes Festival in Topeka honors veterans and unites community Saturday November 5, 2016 9am-2pm
First, please allow me to thank you, personally for your ongoing support of the Military Veteran Project and for your willingness to help me carry on Jamie's wish to care for his fellow soldiers. When I created the Topeka Veterans Parade, I wanted to show our veterans their services and sacrifices were and will not be forgotten.
Together with a group of wonderful supporters we have created theSalute Our Heroes Festival to umbrella the Topeka Veterans Paradeand we’ve added new attractions that will promote and capture the spirit of the freedom we use each day as a way of saying Thank You to our veterans! Last year, we had over 5,000 people attend and participate and I know we can reach 10,000 this year!
The Salute Our Heroes Festival is kicking off a variety of small pocket events from 9am-2pm Saturday, November 5, 2016 around the State Capitol leading up to the Topeka Veterans Parade at 11am as the main event. As many as a dozen food trucks are expected at the festival, Cars will be lined up for car show, Motorcycles and bikes are coming from Missouri, Colorado and Nebraska for the bike show, added with the kids festival for the kiddos to have fun and with new entries everyday.

If it wasn't for you and your continued support, the Military Veteran Project would not be able to continue its mission and for that I am forever thankful to you, your business and community as a whole.
