Palm Coast - Join the City of Palm Coast and Flagler County on Nov. 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a combined Veterans Day event honoring local veterans and their service to this country.
The event features a ceremony from 10-11 a.m. at the Flagler Auditorium, hosted by Flagler County. It will be live-streamed from the auditorium to Central Park for those who do not want to drive from one location to the other, or would prefer to social distance and stay in an outdoor space, as opposed to being inside the auditorium.
Veterans and their families are then welcome to join the City of Palm Coast for a barbecue lunch from Hot Diggity Dog at Central Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Both events are free, but require a ticket via pre-registration.
