The N.C. 4th of July Festival Flag Raising Ceremony is organized by our friends at Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site. This partnership has enabled us to merge history and tradition, creating a unique Flag Raising Ceremony where drum and fife meet the Knights of Columbus.
The procession begins at the N.C Maritime Museum @ Southport, 204 E. Moore Street and is lead by a colonial band and citizens dressed in period costumes, followed by area public officials to the intersection of Howe/Moore Streets. The Knights of Columbus hoist the colors, a flag that has been flown over our Nation’s Capitol.
When in the area, we encourage you to visit Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site, 8884 St. Philip's Road, Winnabow, just minutes from Southport. Or plan another trip around one of their special events. Well worth the trip.
