"Each year on the Saturday closest to Flag Day the City of Quincy pays tribute to Old Glory with the Quincy Flag Day Parade & Celebration.

Started over 60 years ago by Koch Club founder, the late Richard J. Koch, the Quincy Flag Day parade is the longest-running parade of its kind in the nation.

The celebration portion of the evening held at Pageant Field following the parade consists of a flag raising of an impressive 30' x 60' version of Old Glory, a fly-over, a patriotic medley, presentation of awards to the parade grand marshal and the recipient of the Richard J. Koch Youth Service award capped off by a dazzling 30 minute fireworks display over Black's Creek."

According to the representative from the Quincy Park & Forestry Department, the fireworks display will start around 9:00pm.
