Recognition, celebration & boat parade!
Recognition at 10 am, celebration and boat parade at 11 am.
Both events start with the pleadge, anthem, minute of silence and 3 cheers where 500 beach balls are thrown up into the air. The first event at 10 am is respect and recognition, where the Mayor of Cumming and other community leaders present recognition to Peace Officers from around Georgia. The second event is a celebration of the freedoms made possible from the dedication and sacrifice of Peace Officers.
Giant Flag Event!
During the first event, with the giant USA flag on the beach we will respect and honor Peace Officers, especially those who fell in the line of duty in 2021. A few minutes before 11 am the giant floating USA flag will be moved into the water and will flip over (Mutiny) to display the “Thin Blue Line” flag. Under this flag we will joyously celebrate the lives of Peace Officers with as much fun as we can have! Hot dogs, apple pie and baseball contests in a pirate theme.
Here is our first giant floating flag.
