“This celebration usually runs an hour to 90 minutes,” says Steve Poyner, the event and facility manager for the Village of Royal Palm Beach, “with the band playing military songs just below the amphitheater stage on the right-hand side. I’ve been here for 12 years, and this tradition started before that. It’s a way for the village to pay homage to our fallen soldiers.”
