PARADISE, Calif. - A long-standing Paradise tradition continues this Veterans day with its avenue of flags up the Skyway.
The parade of flags has been a tradition for Paradise since 1999 to honor those who served and are still serving.
Chairman for the Parade of Flags, Michael Zuccolillo said around 6 a.m. Monday morning, a group from the rotary club and then clampers came out to place around 500 flags around the Skyway.
Zuccolillo said usually they would be putting out around 1,100 flags, but those flags burned during the Camp Fire when the Elk's Lodge burned down.
However, Zuccolillo said they have the financial commitments to reach that 1,100 flag number again for Memorial Day in May.
The flags will be out until around 4 p.m. just before the sun goes down.
