Soaring temps in Irving, Texas did not stop 300 patriotic volunteers from completing their mission! They placed 40,000 flags in front of every home, business and place of worship in honor of the Fourth of July. It's called "The Great Flag Caper!"
The tradition was birthed when Nell Anne Hunt moved to Irving, Texas years ago. She placed about 200 flags in all of her neighbor’s yards to celebrate America's birthday.
"Well, the next year everybody liked it so much I bought 400 flags so it went a little further," said Nell. “And then before we know it, the whole city said, ‘Count us in. We want to do it, too.'"
Nell wants everyone to remember that we're all alike under that flag and that is something to celebrate!
