昆士市府訂6月14日慶祝國旗日

Unique Flag Day Celebration Planned for June 14th  
June 5, 2020  
QUINCY - Mayor Thomas P. Koch announced that the City of Quincy will maintain its proud 
tradition of honoring Ol’ Glory on Flag Day with a unique vehicle parade on June 14th. 
Mayor Koch invites people to decorate their cars and trucks and travel under a giant 
American flag that will be displayed by two fire department ladder trucks. The 50’ by 20’ 
flag will be on display on Merrymount Parkway from 1 pm to 3 pm. 
“The show must go on,” said Mayor Koch. “I am disappointed that we can’t conduct our 
usual festivities but we are going to make the most of it and carry on this great Quincy 
tradition. I encourage families to get creative, decorate your vehicle, and have some great 
fun.” 
The flag will be raised on Merrymount Parkway by Veterans’ Memorial Stadium. Cars can 
travel in both directions under the flag. 
This will be the 69th annual Flag Day Parade and Celebration in Quincy, the nation’s 
longest-running Flag Day celebration. The event was started by Richard Koch (Mayor 
Koch’s father) in 1952 at Cavanagh Stadium in North Quincy. 
There will be no formal ceremony at Pageant Field nor will there be fireworks this year. 
Added Mayor Koch, “We will celebrate this year but we are already looking toward 2021 for 
the 70th and making it the biggest and best of all time. I appreciate all of those people that 
have participated and sponsored this event through the years. It is one of Quincy’s finest 
traditions.”
