May 25 – 27, 2019
98 Summer Street – Traffic Island, Cohasset

Cohasset’s Field of Honor® flag display on the traffic islands by the Sons of the American Legion building, which is now in its 13th year, is a main feature of the town’s annual Memorial Day observance. While superstition considers thirteen and unlucky number, it was lucky for the 13 colonies symbolized on the first States & Stripes, and the annual Field of Honor displays of Old Glory have created a favored town experience. For the Sons of the American Legion Post 118 which hosts the event yearly, the Cohasset Field of Honor® brings renewed appreciation for area residents that focuses on the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have earned and maintained the freedoms we enjoy.
