The second annual Fly the Flag High presentation will take place from 8 to 9 a.m. Friday in honor of Flag Day, and Quad-Citians are invited to participate as volunteers or spectators.

The presentation, organized by Karen Buchanan, features people holding American flags while standing on the Master Sgt. Stanley Talbot Memorial (Centennial) Bridge between Rock Island and Davenport.

According to Buchanan, volunteers need to report to the staging area at 2nd and Gaines streets in Davenport by 7:20 a.m. Friday. They can park either in the city parking lot at Gaines Street and River Drive or in the parking lot at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport.

All participants must sign waivers for themselves and for any children in their care.

After a short ceremony at 7:30 am, flags, provided by the Patriot Riders and the Quad-City AM and Noon Optimist Clubs, will be distributed, and the walk to the bridge will begin. At 9 a.m., the volunteers will return to the staging area.

Buchanan said the best place to view the display is the third-base-line seats at Modern Woodmen Park, which will be open to spectators. Other possible viewing sites are LeClaire Park in Davenport or Schwiebert Park in Rock Island.
