We are proud to invite you to our Memorial Day Avenue of Flags. More than 1,500 American flags—each donated by veterans' families —line the avenues from Saturday morning through Monday evening to honor our veterans and all those who serve in the military. This year the flags will be displayed from Saturday morning, May 27 through Monday evening, May 29.

Be sure to complete the card provided to you upon entry. Five cards will be selected to receive a FREE tree that will be delivered and planted (within the greater Cedar Rapids metro area).
