The Tri-State 9/11 Tribute, honoring active military, first responders, and veterans, will take place September 11, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for the parade and then from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Prowers County Fairgrounds in Lamar.

The event is the brainchild of Doug Harbour, a Vietnam War veteran and longtime medical technician, who launched it in 2010 to recognize the efforts of first responders and the sacrifices of veterans.
