June 30th – July 4th 2023
Seven Gables Park, 1750 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton, IL 60189
Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at Seven Gables Park on June 30th through July 4th, 2023. This stirring display of 2,000 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our Active-Duty Military, Fallen Servicemen & Women, First Responders, Heroes in Our Lives, all Veterans, and Home Town Heroes.
The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people. Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.
This moving display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships, and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.
This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Wheaton Park District and Warrenville VFW Post 8081 Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags.
The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!
