Join Us! Over Memorial Day Weekend 2014, the sparkling lake in The Park at River Walk will be surrounded by a sea of red, white and blue as 1,000 American flags are flown in tribute to all who have sacrificed – and who continue to sacrifice – to make the United States the greatest country in the world.


Come to the Park and experience this spectacular patriotic display and celebration. Take time to walk among the flags and remember the men and women who ensure our health, safety and liberty. Enjoy activities throughout the weekend. On Memorial Day, Monday, visit the patriotic fair with booths, bands and fun. From noon until 2pm, there will be a very special presentation featuring a flag ceremony, dignitaries and invited guests. Sponsor one of these beautiful flags in honor of your loved one. Sponsors may pick up their beautiful flags after the event.


Sponsor one of the flags to be flown in honor of anyone, living or deceased, whom you wish to remember on this special day with a dramatic display of patriotism – perhaps a veteran, active service member, first responder, loved one, friend or any person who makes or has made our country a better place. Each flag comes with a special certificate suitable for framing and you're welcome to take your flag home after the event as our thank you. Order online or download the flag sponsor form.
