Join us as we honor all service men and women with a Memorial Day Celebration.
In observance of Memorial Day, the city will have a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, May 28, at the Grand Prairie Veterans Memorial. The event will feature a fly over of AT-6 vintage airplanes, guest speaker Commissioned Officer Corps Commander Donna M. Johnson of the U.S. Navy, and a 21-gun salute. In addition, a 53 pound brass bell conceived and purchased by Grand Prairie chapter 1013 of the Vietnam Veterans of America will be dedicated to honor all Veterans with a special commitment to Grand Prairie Veterans who lost their lives during active service. A flag retirement ceremony will be held immediately following the ceremony.
Veterans from all branches of the military and tours of service are welcome to attend, as well as families of veterans and other well-wishers. A free all-American hot dog lunch and lemonade provided by local Grand Prairie Rotary Clubs will be served.
