This year the City will host the annual 9/11 Memorial virtually. Tune in at sunrise (approx. 7 a.m. CST) for a live video broadcast of the private gathering on the City's Facebook page. The video will also be available on the City’s website and other communication platforms after the event. The sunrise memorial will commemorate "Patriot Day” which is the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Out of an abundance of caution and in line with the guidance regarding social distancing, this year’s 9/11 Memorial will not be a public event. The public is encouraged to choose a time later in the day to visit Mesquite Freedom Park.
