Flag Day...

It's kind of a big deal [here].

Appleton's Flag Day Parade is the oldest in the United States (since 1950). It attracts about 60,000 street-level spectators now (about 1/6 of the three-county population). Appleton's population is only 72,000.

Members of the Wisconsin Society of the Sons of the American Revolution bear historic flags east on W. College Avenue at N. Superior Street in the 58th annual Flag Day Parade in Appleton, Wis., Saturday afternoon, June 14, 2008.
