On National Flag Day, the Batavia Riverwalk will glow with 1,777 decorated luminarias, representing the year the Continental Congress first adopted our national flag. The party will feature patriotic music performed by the Air National Guard Band of the Midwest and the Batavia Patriotic Pop-Up Chorus. Winners of an essay contest, “What the American Flag Means to Me,” will read their essays. A Batavia resident is widely considered the "Father of Flag Day."
