We hope you were there as we gave our local friends and neighbors a healthy taste of Victory Weekend yesterday at our fourth annual Memorial Day Celebration. If not, here is what happened.

The Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, Virginia was a fun place to be for the huge Memorial Day Celebration (see picture below). A crowd of over 6,000 people enjoyed the food, music, cars, activities and fun to be had on the Monday Holiday.

The crowd rocked out with Lightshot and Audra McLaughlin and sang alongside John Schmid and headliners Jeff and Sheri Easter (the Easters are pictured below). The 200+ classic car cruise-in showed visitors these vehicles that were as old as 80 years. Children of all ages enjoyed face painting, animal balloons and three gigantic bouncy inflatables. Steve emceed the event, even dancing and singing along with Jeff and Sheri toward the event’s end.

Victory Weekend also honored over 100 men and women who were veterans, military personnel and first responders (see picture below). This free community gift honored those who sacrificed their lives and allowed the community to share their thankfulness as well.
