Williamsport's 4th of July Flag Raising

For the last several years the city of Williamsport with the help of local businesses has raised the largest American flag in existence as a backdrop to the 4th of July celebration and fireworks. How large is it? Each star is 4 feet from tip to tip.

My thanks to Chuck Roan for his tips on when to be at the site. And for being the person who originated the tradition. He has since transferred responsibility to the young Marines and National Guard.
