Hometown Heroes 2020

May 23 @ 8:00 am - September 14 @ 8:00 pm

Hometown Heroes is how Kilmarnock says “Thank You” to our military veterans.  Vets are honored by their families with banners that line the town’s main streets and shop windows from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

“Celebrating Hometown Heroes” Walking Tour honors military veterans from WWI to Desert Storm with banners throughout our Steptoe’s dining and shopping district. Take this self-guided, walking tour of over 200 banners and learn the stories of these veterans as you stroll Main Street.

On display all summer long, these banners honor these heroes and their service. Grab a story booklet at the Town Hall at 1 N. Main Street (in the literature box at the flag pole) or from one of our participating merchants and learn more about the contributions of these Hometown Heroes. Makes a great family event and totally FREE. Banners will be up and on display Saturday May 23rd, 2020 and will be taken down Sunday Sept. 13th, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 this event will be postponed until further notice. The banners will still go up and families will have an opportunity to take photos with their banners at the end of the season.
