BURTON (WJRT) - (05/29/17) - Fireworks lit up the night sky over Burton Monday night as a patriotic tribute to Memorial Day and the veterans who gave their life for the freedoms we all enjoy today.
People lit candles for a special tribute before the show.
It's all part of the grand finale of a day of events to mark the important holiday and their service.
The annual tributes began Monday morning with a 5K and included a parade, entertainment, even a petting zoo for the kids.
People we talked with say it speaks to family being at the core of the dedication and commitment by those who serve.
