 This two day event celebrates our heroes, embraces the fallen, and aims to educate communities on how to respectfully observe Memorial Day.  The opening ceremony begins at 3:45 PM on Sunday, which kicks off the 20-hour March to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. The march will start at 4:00 PM, with a 2-mile loop on the Dallas city streets and will continue up and down the Katy Trail.

There will live music and entertainment throughout the day;  food trucks that cater to a range of tastes and dietary needs; a Kids Zone, that lets the kiddos burn off some energy with friends; and a Storyboard Procession that allows you to participate and join others in remembering their fallen heroes.
