In remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Pennsylvania, people across the country will gather to honor them this Friday.

Here’s a couple of local events to remember those who lost their lives and celebrate our country’s first-responders.

Patriot Day rally

A Patriots Day Rally will be happening outside of the Williamsburg-James City County Courthouse, 5201 Monticello Ave. from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. Friday.

The event will start with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a prayer for the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. Participants will then have the opportunity to say a few words.

Participants can bring non-political signs, banners and flags. The event description specifies this is a non partisan celebration aimed to unite Americans after months of civil unrest and provide an opportunity to discuss how America can move forward.

The event is being hosted by Art Garrison and other members of the Williamsburg community.
