HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) - It was a day to honor our veterans Sunday at the Erie County Fair, with a large parade, a free concert, and with all vets getting free admission.

The rain didn't put a damper on celebration, as hundreds marched through the muddy infield to sound of the marching bands, passing underneath a massive American Flag suspended from two fire truck tower.

Emotions were a bit mixed as many had their thoughts on our service men and women overseas and as we prepare to mark the 10th anniversary of the September, 11 2001 terror attacks.
