Nearly 4,000 attendees turned out for the all-day Scars and Stripes music festival Saturday with rock powerhouse 3 Doors Down headlining the 13 hours of nonstop entertainment at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.
Three veterans groups in Las Vegas benefited from Scars and Stripes, including the Nevada chapter of Pets for Vets. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, waded into the “Hero” section to greet and shake hands with military attendees.
