The 31st Honor America Days Celebration
The 31st Honor America Days Celebration will reach back to its patriotic roots with the theme "We Pledge Allegiance" recognizing Rome as the final resting place of Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance and the nation's celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner. Honor America Days established in 1984 continues to be one of the most recognizable annual summer events in the Mohawk Valley.
The 31st parade steps off at 10am, rain or shine. The parade will feature a first ever appearance by the Hit Men Brass Band from Victor, NY.
Once again, Syracuse's Symphoria will present the annual 8:00 PM concert on the lawn of Fort Stanwix National Monument also on Saturday, July 26, featuring a mix of Pops and patriotic musical tunes culminating in the 1812 Overture followed by John Philip Sousa's Stars and Stripes and a spectacular fireworks show presented by Berkshire Bank. RAIN DATE: Sunday, July 27 (if it rains on Sunday, the concert will be held in Saint Peter's Roman Catholic Church).
