The streets of Downtown Kilgore were red, white and blue for their veteran parade. The parade was a salute to the men and women serving and who have served for our country.

"It's a great feeling to know so many people care for us." Vietnam Veteran Jim Patrick said. "We did not receive this kind of welcome when we returned from Vietnam, so it feels great.

Other activities included military leaders speaking, scavenger hunt, open mic and live entertainment.

Kilgore City Manager Josh Selleck says he is proud of the way the community has come out for all the Main Street events.

Kilgore is one step closer to becoming the most patriotic city in Texas.
