As part of Flag Day on Wednesday, Teri Schmidt of the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau says a special event is scheduled in the community.

“Veterans Memorial Park is going to be hosting a celebration about Flag Day! The event will honor our nation’s greatest symbol---the American Flag.”

Teri says a patriotic concert is also planned.

“The Sioux Falls Municipal Band will be playing to salute our veterans. Another great family event and meaningful program for our veterans.”

The free program begins at 7:00 PM at Veterans Memorial Park located in Sioux Falls at 1021 West Bailey Street.

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14th by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777
