COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A nonprofit group is celebrating Vietnam War-era veterans with a festival in Columbia.

The Celebrate Freedom Foundation on Saturday is putting on a festival at Finlay Park. The daylong event features living history displays, historic home tours and a free concert.

Helicopters are the theme of this year’s celebration, with models like the Huey, Cobra, Loach and OH-58 on display. There are also other military vehicles, field encampments and reenactment planned.

The group is also putting on a school education day Friday, as well as a Heroes of Freedom dinner at the Medallion Center.
