Hundreds gather in downtown Wausau to celebrate Flag Day


It was a celebration of the flag at Wausau's 400 block.

Friday was Flag Day. Hundreds of people attended a ceremony hosted by the Wausau Elks Lodge.

The group has held this event for more than 100 years.  

It featured a presentation, a rifle salute, and a history of the flag given by local boy scout troops.

"We are truly happy to be Americans and we're proud for what we stand for and what the flag means to us," said Wausau Elks Lodge member Kevin McCarthy.

Organizers say they plan to continue this event for many years to come.
