World War II Reenactors Take Over Kennekuk Park


Sunday, Allied and Axis forces rolled into Vermilion County's Kennekuk County Park.

More than 180 reenactors showed up with authentic World War II uniforms, vehicles, and weapons.

Organizers say the day long event reminds people of the sacrifices made by those who fought in the war.

They also say it's a great educational tool that teaches kids and adults what soliders actually went through, and with it being a hands-on experience, it leaves a lasting memory.
