Vince Gill's return to the fair Wednesday aided the day's attendance of 45,950. Today at the fair, it's veterans who will be aided - and recognized.
Today is Veteran's Day, and starts with an 11 am ceremony outside the Horticulture Building. Congressman Dan Maffei, state senators John DeFrancisco and Dave Valesky, Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli and military leaders will be on hand. All vets and active-duty personnel with military ID can attend the fair free today. It's a big day and night for music - Lee Greenwood sings at Chevy Court at 2, with Plain White T's on the stage at 8. Plus, it's hot country act Luke Bryan performing a sold-out show at the grandstand, starting with opening act Thompson Square at 7:30.
