A time for Veterans to gather and enjoy a lunch together prior to the Memorial Service and the parade in White Sulphur Springs, this event has been a part of the festival for many years. It began as a Veteran\u2019s Breakfast, but changed to a luncheon a few years ago. When Pigs Fly BBQ, Blue Ridge Lumber, and the Lewis Family sponsor this event. It provides the opportunity for our community to give back to those who have served us.
