The Memorial Day weekend event features tributes to the armed forces
The annual Feast of the Flowering Moon officially kicks off in downtown Chillicothe Friday at noon.
Feast committee member Angie Trego says to tie the festival in to the Memorial Day holiday, they will pay tribute to those who served in the armed forces.
She says also this year they will hold a "Flags of Honor" ceremony Friday beginning at noon at the corner of Water and Paint streets. The display will then remain set up throughout the weekend.
