Abraham Lincoln once said, “Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause.” It is this notion that embodied the second annual Veteran Fest held at the Downtown Event Centre on Sunday, Aug. 5. Veterans of Southeast Texas and beyond were celebrated at the veteran focused festival hosted by Young Americans Overseas (YAO) and sponsored by Humana and Marvic International LLC Construction. The event was free and also offered street tacos, drinks and live music with a petting zoo and face painting available for children at no charge.

Generation X is known as being the generation of slackers, the cynical and the disaffected, but they’re also the MTV Generation, and they demand excellence in their music. As a new rock music culture emerges, one defined by fans and artists rather than labels and MTV, Loudwire presents the Gen-X Summer concert tour featuring performances from Buckcherry, P.O.D., Lit and Alien Ant Farm inside the Golden Nugget’s on Friday, Aug. 10, in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
