The event takes place Saturday, March 17, beginning at 11 a.m., at Ketchikan's City Park.
The event will get underway with music and speeches. A march to downtown Ketchikan and back will follow at approximately 11:30. Participants will carry black umbrellas as a statement against the on-going violence in Afghanistan and Iraq, brutal wars that have cost the lives of thousands of American troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Afghani civilians.
Although it won't be planted
on Saturday, a Peace Tree will be displayed and planting in the
park at a later date.
