Westerville Field of Heroes is a Memorial Day tradition that honors and remembers our heroes. The 12th annual Field of Heroes, presented by the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club, is a “drive-through” event from May 22-25, 2020.
The event is held at the Westerville Sports Complex at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and County Line Road West. To drive through, enter at the Cleveland Ave entrance to the Westerville Sports Complex, across from the Community Center. Volunteers and signage will direct cars through the Sports Complex parking lot to view the display of flags. There will also be a tribute in honor of our Essential Workforce.
The Field of Heroes is especially moving when the flags are illuminated after dark.
There are no flag sales or dedications attached to the flags for 2020. The park will be open, so if you choose to walk through the Field, The park remains open, and if visitors choose to walk through the Field, you must maintain proper distance from other visitors.
You can make a free virtual dedication on the event’s website beginning on May 22 if you would like to honor your heroes. After you create your dedication, you can download it to your computer to share it on social media with the tag #FieldofHeroes.
There will be no programming, ceremonies, reading of the names, or Saturday evening concert this year.
