St. Louis ( KSDK ) -- It was a fun-filled atmosphere with a serious purpose, at the Veterans' Festival in Forest Park over the Labor Day weekend.
In its second year, the festival aims to raise funds for the Veterans Resource Foundation. Hundreds turned out for food, entertainment, an eagle named Liberty, and a Chinook helicopter display.
The only hitch was Saturday's rainout of a planned parade.
