PHOTO GALLERY: Honoring the Stars and Stripes at the Lawn at Memorial City

January 30, 2018 GMT

At 5 p.m. every Friday, a ceremony honoring the Stars & Stripes at The Lawn, Memorial City’s newest greenspace, is meant to honor the country, those who have and continue to serve, and their families through a patriotic ceremony.

The inaugural event series kicked off Friday, Jan. 19, with a color guard performance by Scarborough High School’s JROTC program and live trumpet music. The weekly tribute features live performances by local military community groups such as Houston-area ROTC, Boy Scouts and other military programs, as well as live musical renditions of American classics, including “Grand Ole Flag” and “God Bless America.” The event will also offer light bites for purchase by a rotating roster of Memorial City restaurants.

“Stars & Stripes” is the first event series of many to debut at The Lawn. The greenspace joins the Memorial City development, alongside the recently opened Hotel ZaZa Memorial City and Ciro’s Italian Grill.
