[ARCHIVED] Homestead’s 8th Annual Military Appreciation Day a Huge Success

Military Appreciation Day Post 2019

The picturesque streets of Historic Downtown Homestead transformed for Military Appreciation Day as military and civilians came together for a day of food, drinks, music, and performances.  The eighth annual community event was a chance to celebrate while viewing specialized military vehicles and interactive displays.

Those in attendance enjoyed a variety of live music and performances, a K-9 demonstration by the Homestead Police Department, and a children’s area with games and activities.  Plus, opening ceremonies featuring Homestead Mayor & Council, Military Personnel, and Local & National Elected Officials. 

“When families connect great things happen,” said Mayor Stephen Shelley, who has been spearheading Military Appreciation Day since its inception.  “That’s why I look forward to this event every year.  Seeing our military and civilian families come together really shows you what the Homestead community is all about.”

Military Appreciation Day is part of Military Appreciation Month, in which all Homestead residents are encouraged to honor our military.  In this spirit, the north side of the Seminole Theatre is adorned with a 40 foot long American Flag for the entire month.  Krome Avenue is also decorated with flags and yellow ribbons to honor our service men and women and remind residents and visitors of their commitment to defending American freedom. 

The event was a community effort organized by the City of Homestead along with Homestead Air Reserve Base, Military Affairs Committee, South Dade Chamber of Commerce, Seminole Theatre, and Homestead Main Street.
