This year, more than 1400 tickets were sold out for the event that is clearly becoming increasingly popular.
Veterans and their families had the Erie Zoo to themselves tonight for this event.
Vets, both young and old, were able to gain valuable information from many vendors in the zoo, and were able to check out the animals and enjoy lots of food.
The event is designed to show local veterans how much they are appreciated by the Erie community, and also serves as a great way to bring the vets together - considering some haven't seen each other for years.
If you are a veteran and were unable to attend this event but want more information on what the Center can offer you, here is a link to all the services available at the Erie VA Medical Center: http://www.erie.va.gov/services/.
