Flag Day & National Bomb Pop Day

Did you know that there is a chance we could NOT have rec­og­nized Flag Day this year? Or any year, for that mat­ter. Flag Day is cel­e­brated on June 14 and com­mem­o­rates the adop­tion of the red, white and blue flag we pledge alle­giance to. In 1916, Pres­i­dent Woodrow Wil­son issued the procla­ma­tion offi­cially estab­lish­ing June 14 as Flag Day, yet it is not an offi­cial fed­eral hol­i­day. Each year, it is at the President’s dis­cre­tion to pro­claim the offi­cial observance.

Thank­fully, we have some­thing to cel­e­brate this year! Parades are one of the most com­mon ways to cel­e­brate Flag Day, with the longest-running Flag Day parade tak­ing place in Quincy, Mass­a­chu­setts. This parade began in 1952 and is still going strong.
