SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Nebraska (KTIV) – With Wednesday marking the 18th anniversary of the attacks Sept. 11, 2001, officials with Siouxland Freedom Park in South Sioux City will be hosting a Remembrance Ceremony to honor those who lost their lives.
The ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. at Siouxland Freedom Park, 1101 Foundry Road. As part of the service, a dignified Retirement and Disposal Ceremony for old and damaged American flags will be held.
Due to heavy rain Tuesday night in Siouxland, cars will not be able to park on the grassy area next to the Vietnam Wall at Freedom Park.
Once the parking lot at Freedom Park is full, cars will have to be park on the hard surface parking lot in the area of the Siouxland Community Indoor Tennis Facility building under construction in South Sioux City. Residents are asked to look for signs that read “Shuttle Parking”.
Two Durham school buses will shuttle people back and forth from the parking lot to the event and back to the parking lot at the conclusion of the ceremony. The shuttles will be handicap accessible.
