BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Dozens of people gathered Saturday at the Kern County Fairgrounds to salute veterans.
It was a day filled with music, food and speeches from Kern County's Wounded Warriors.
The annual Salute to Our Local Heroes event paid tribute to Veterans and raised money for the Wounded Heroes Fund.
"Kern County has one of the largest veteran populations in the State of California," said Wendy Porter, Executive Director of the Wounded Heroes Fund. "We just want to make sure those veterans know how much we care about them how much we appreciate them how much the community supports them."
