Procession To Welcome Traveling 9/11 Exhibit To Duluth On April 2
Perhaps no one will ever forget where they were on September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Towers and the United States were targeted by terrorists. In the 16 years that have passed since, Americans have turned toward memories to help them never forget the events of that day.
It’s in that sentiment that a traveling 9/11 exhibit has been put together, traveling the nation to display artifacts from the event for everyone to see. That exhibit is coming to Duluth to the Home Show – April 5-9 at the DECC. In advance of the Home Show, organizers are inviting the public to attend a 9/11 Exhibit Procession to welcome the traveling museum to town.
According to the press release issued by organizers, the procession will take occur on the lower side of Railroad Street in front of the DECC lot, turning on Harbor Drive near the Duluth 10 corner, go past the William A. Irving, and finally make its way to Door 7 of the DECC. While the procession is expected at 12:30 PM, organizers are suggesting that people start to line up by 12 Noon. Organizers will be handing out small American flags to people in the crowd – while supplies last.
It should be pointed out that while it is free to view and take part in the procession, the 9/11 exhibit will not be available for viewing on that day. In addition, you will need to attend the Home Show inside the DECC to see the exhibit – April 5-9.
