TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Southern Arizona VA will hold its seventh annual Veterans Celebration event this weekend.

Veterans, active duty military and their families are welcome to come out and see what the VA hospital has to offer.

Organizers expect over 500 people to attend the 7th annual Veterans Day celebration.

The ‘One Stop Shop' will offer resources for anyone who served in the military and their families.

Those resources range from healthcare to education to employment.  This year for the first time veterans can get job interview with companies on the spot.

Bands will play, a car show will be held and vets will share their stories; there will also be activities for the children – from face painting to pony rides.

Event organizers say more than 50 community partners will volunteer their time.

The event is happening Nov. 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at the VA Medical Center (3601 S. Sixth Avenue).  The event is open to veterans, active duty military and their families.
