Thousands Of Flags To Be Planted At Waterfront Park

The flags represent veteran graves and will take up hundreds of feet on the Great Lawn.Flags4Vets Director Fred Moore says the event extends beyond Louisville.“To buy thousands of flags for this memorial day vigil and then immediately after it we start sending these flags across the country to cemeteries, last year we sent flags to cemeteries in 17 states. And our goal is to eventually buy all the flags for the entire nation,” he said.The event is open to the public.
