Live music sends Sundown Salute to entertaining start

Almost KISS amped up the crowd as the second musical act of Wednesday night at Sundown Salute.

Festivities began Wednesday night at Junction City’s annual Sundown Salute, and a large crowd was ready. 

Visitors were able to purchase food from various vendors, partook in some shopping and listened to live concerts throughout the night. Kids had plenty of rides to choose from at the carnival, along with funnel cakes and other desserts to indulge in.
