Event Details

Hosted by the American Legion Congaree Post 90. The post members will fold all the old, worn or tattered American flags before properly disposing of them in a fire. Anyone bringing an old flag of their own to be disposed will be able to place it on a table when they arrive, where it will be folded in triangle form. If the guest wishes to participate in a processional of bringing their flag down, they may take it back once folded. If they wish to sit and observe, they may leave it at the table. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and the main flag burning will take about 30 minutes. Additional flags brought by guests will continue to be burned throughout the evening.
