BEDFORD – The Lawrence County commissioners approved Lawrence County Veterans Affairs Officer Brad Bough’s and Lawrence County Prosecutor Sam Arp’s request to host the second annual Festival for Heroes.
The festival will honor veterans, police officers, firefighters, and emergency first responders.
The event will be held all day on Saturday, September 10th on the courthouse lawn. J Street will be closed to traffic. The event will have vendors, food trucks, and more. The Prosecutor’s Office will also have a free DNA and fingerprinting booth for children.
“We are planning early to have a better turnout than last year,” added Arp.
“We want to support our local heroes including 3,000 plus veterans, firefighters, paramedics, and police officers,” said Arp. “This will give the public the chance to show their support and gratitude. It will also allow our youth to meet these heroes.”
The event will be held from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and the Farmers Market will also be present selling their goods.
“This is not only for Lawrence County but the heroes of other communities,” added Bough.
