Mount Vernon Memorial Park in Fair Oaks held its 47th annual Memorial Day commemoration today.

This is one of the largest in our region with a giant American flag on display and hundreds of other U.S. flags lining the roads around the cemetery.

Local Boy Scouts spent the morning putting up the more than 100 flags.

The California National Color Guard presented the colors along with bagpipes and the singing of the National Anthem by the Deterding Elementary School Choir.
