The Kansas Veteran’s and Family Reunion at El Dorado Lake was packed for its first night of the annual event Friday night. Bands played country music, military decor was all around and a spectacular fireworks show lit up the skies above the lake to create a memorable scene. 

More activities are coming Saturday. The Legion Ride-in is at 9:45, followed by the opening ceremonies at 10 a.m. with a posting of colors and a few speakers. Throughout the day, there will be a corn hole tournament, auctions, live music and a USO show special drawing. Car show winners will be announced at 3 p.m. (pre-registration is at 9:30 a.m.). Crazy Heart will perform in the evening followed by another fireworks spectacular.
