Banquete Independent School District students were let out a little earlier Friday, to honor and celebrate America's true heros.

The seventh annual Veterans Day Celebration was held at the Banquete High School football stadium. There, veterans and their families were the VIPs.

Organizers said that, since the first year they've put on this event, they try to do it bigger and better.

Veterans from all over the state came to Banquette to participate in the event.
