HUNDREDS OF CORVETTES TO FORM AN AMERICAN FLAG
Be a Part of the Corvette American Flag Tribute: Bigger and Better for 2018!
Don’t miss the opportunity to have your Corvette be a part of the spectacular patriotic display. The Corvette epitomizes the American Dream in the form of America’s Sports Car! For 2018 at Corvettes at Carlisle, we will once again create an American Flag made entirely of Corvettes as a tribute to the dream, the sports car and as a salute to our heroes. Nearly 200 cars will be involved, including red, white, blue, silver AND Carlisle Blue Corvettes. The tribute will be staged on Friday morning. All participants must be registered for the Fun Field to participate and will receive a special gift. The flag display has a specific registration which is linked below.
As America’s Sports Car builds the flag, we’ll also host some very special ceremonies near the grandstand. At 2 p.m. not only can you see see the grand unveiling of the completed flag, but we’ll have a Red, White and Blue tribute on the stage. During this special salute to service, enjoy a reading/recording of “What is an American,” written by Michael Brown and first performed live by him in 2015. Re-recorded with a different voice, but the same great message, we’ll play it to get things started. Not long after, we welcome all on-site Veterans to join us for a reaffirmation of oath. Once completed, trumpeter Willard Jackson will play the service anthems of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.
If all of this doesn’t give you goose bumps, our next guest will. Please welcome to the stage, Mr. Wesley Wong. Mr. Wong will help lead a parade and tribute of first responders past the stage, sirens and lights a-blaring! The kicker to it all, and THE reason #WeStand, is that Mr. Wong was one of the first on-scene during the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 (read about that below). Join Mr. Wong as we honor the fallen, those lost domestically and abroad and offer respect to a man who personally witnessed the carnage of THE worst terror attack on American soil!
