Grapevine residents and others are invited to join virtually as the city reflects on the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks. The livestream will be available on the city of Grapevine’s Facebook page and will be followed by a World War II D-Day aircraft flyover, weather permitting.
A total of four aircraft will fly over the city between 9 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. This includes “That’s All Brother,” the aircraft that led the main airborne invasion in Normandy, France, on D-Day—June 6, 1944.
Harvest Hall will also honor the victims of 9/11 with the display of a 21-foot-by-21-foot quilt suspended inside the food hall beginning Sept. 3. In partnership with the Dallas 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb, the quilt features the faces of nearly 2,700 victims of the Sept. 11 attacks, stitched together to look like an American flag from afar. The quilt will be on display through Sept. 30.
The quilt is part of a three-piece collection, one of which currently hangs in the entrance of the Pentagon. The second piece is on permanent display at Fountain Place in downtown Dallas.
