With the theme for the event set as “Legacy Built on Sacrifice,” bands, community and business floats, military officials and veterans will unite in tribute to the men and women who have served our nation, past and present. This showing of solidarity helps to renew the community’s support for our local soldiers, as well as soldiers serving abroad.

Please check out the Armed Forces Day Music Festival and Red Dirt BBQ Facebook page. Our event immediately follows the Lawton/Fort Sill Armed Forces Day Parade presented by the Lawton/Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce.

There is also a Facebook page for the 2015 Armed Forces Day Celebration in the Park. This event will occur after the parade. It just gives those who wish to attend a little more information about the events in the park that day. Thank you.
