[Event Updated - 5.12.2020] - Modified

The Avenue of Flags will be postponing our Memorial Day Ceremony that was scheduled to be held on May 25, 2020. It will be rescheduled for Veterans’ Day, November 11, 2020. We appreciate all the past volunteers who have helped to erect the Avenue, however, due to Governor John Bel Edwards’ guidelines, only the Board of Directors will be putting up 1 of the 4 routes on display to honor our veterans this Memorial Day, May 25, 2020.

We would like to invite the Lake Area to come and drive through our modified flag display this Memorial Day, May 25, 2020 from 7:00am to 5:00pm at Orange Grove Graceland Cemetery located at 2023 Broad Street Lake Charles, LA. We hope you enjoy our modified flag display, but please remain in your vehicles as you drive through it.

 

See patriotic spirit in all its glory at the Orange Grove/Graceland Cemetery. Casket Flags line the drive through the cemetery in honor of fallen men and women. These flags were donated just for this day and special memoriam. The flags will be on display from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Veteran's Memorial Day. In addition to the memorial flags, the Avenue of Flags also features a history circle where replicas of eight previous United States flags are flown. The memorial flags measure 5 ft. by 9 1/2 ft., and are generally too large for proper display at home.

*In cases of inclement weather, flags will not be displayed.
