In Memoriam: 145th Memorial Day Remembrance

Memorial Day, originally called "Decoration Day," was proclaimed an official holiday on May 5, 1868 by Army General John Logan. On this day, the flag of the United States is kept at half-mass until noon in remembrance of those who have lost their lives in service of our country, and then raised back to full-staff for the remainder of the day as an inspiration to the living to continue to fight for liberty and justice. The flags on the historic Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque have observed this tradition for 145 years and will fly proudly once again this year. Join the City of Albuquerque Cultural Services Department today for a special day of remembrance. The flag ceremony will begin at noon and will be followed by special dance performances from local groups. Professional dance company Ballet en Fuego will take the stage at 6 p.m. and Grammy nominee Micky Cruz will perform at 7 p.m. Old Town Plaza • Fri May 24 • 'Til 9 pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
