FERNDALE, Wash. – The 48th Annual Festival of Flags will be held on Memorial Day at Moles Greenacres Memorial Park in Ferndale.

This year female veterans will be especially honored for the sacrifices they have given for America’s freedom.

The tradition began in 1965 with just 48 donated flags.

This year there will be 1,550 on display along the ‘Avenue of Flags,’ all donated from the surviving family members of local veterans.

The festival is from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Memorial Day.

Park owner John Moles says he has many generations of veterans in his family.
