The Flag Day Parade will begin at the corner of Greenpoint Avenue and 41st Street. The participants—which will include the Sunnyside Drum Corps, a variety of marching bands, community groups and local school students—will head east along Greenpoint Avenue to 48th Street.

The parade will be followed by a service for fallen veterans at Sabba Park, located at the corner of Queens Boulevard and 49th Street.
