In honor of Memorial Day, Flags4Vets will be setting up 15,000 flags at the North Great Lawn of Waterfront Park, organizers said. As a special tribute, the Metro Corrections Honor Guard will take to the stage at 9:25 a.m. on Monday before the cyclists, paddlers and walkers leave Waterfront Park for the Mayor’s Subway Fresh Fit Hike, Bike & Paddle.

Later that morning, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is to deliver remarks at the Veterans of Foreign Wars service at Cave Hill Cemetery at 11 a.m.
