Saluting our heroes
past and present
The City of Greer takes a few minutes during Freedom Blast to remind everyone why "Freedom" is in the name of the event.
When the band takes a break, it's time for the annual Salute to the Armed Forces and Veterans. This program on the Main Stage is intended to help all remember that freedom is not free. It not only honors current members of the military, but also veterans in attendance.
Come thank our heroes for their service.
Those participating in the Veterans Walk are asked to gather at the Amphitheater Stage by 6:25pm to line up.
