Old Glory will be celebrated in grand style during the Sunnyside Flag Day Parade this Saturday.

The Sunnyside community is coming together this weekend to celebrate the history and adoption of the stars and stripes that make up the flag of the United States of America.

This Saturday will mark the Kiwanis Club of Sunnyside’s 46th annual Flag Day Parade along Greenpoint Avenue.

The celebration commemorates Flag Day, which is on June 14, and features members of the nonprofit Sunnyside Drum Corps.

The parade is set to begin at 11 a.m. on 41st Street and will go down seven blocks to 48th Street.

Once the parade is over a celebration filled with music and community pride will take place at the Veterans Memorial Plaza inside Sabba Park, located on Queens Boulevard and 49th Street.
