This year marks the 50th year for the Sundown Salute and it is sure to be the best year ever! For those, like me, that weren't around when the Sundown Salute all started I thought I would share a little about how this all began! The Sundown Salute originally started in Milford, KS, fireworks were shot off over the lake so that people in their boats could also enjoy the fireworks on the water. They had a car show and even a Miss Milford pageant in the early years. As the Sundown Salute grew it needed to have some more space and was moved to Junction City, KS!
