Flag Day salute
The Little Rock Winds headlines the 24th annual Flag Day salute, “A Stars and Stripes Celebration,” with a program of marches, patriotic songs and Broadway show tunes, 7 p.m. Sunday behind the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History in MacArthur Park, 503 E. Ninth St., Little Rock. Israel Getzov conducts.
The concert kicks off with the presentation of colors by the Little Rock Air Force Base Honor Guard, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance and the national anthem. The band will perform the songs of all the U.S. Armed Forces to recognize military veterans and active members.
Hosts are the museum and Little Rock Parks and Recreation; sponsor is Stone Bank. Blue Bell Creameries is providing free ice cream, Premium Refreshment will supply free bottled water and WoodmenLife will provide hand-held flags. Admission is free; attendees should take lawn chairs; picnic baskets are welcome. Inclement weather will force cancellation. Because construction on the next-door Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts reduces parking in the park, a trolley shuttle will run from the main post office parking lot at 600 E. Capitol Ave. to the park starting at 6 p.m. and after the concert until 9 p.m. Call (501) 666-0777 or visit lrwinds.org.
