Event Description:
911 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit &
First Responders Weekend in Rockport-Fulton

On February 16-19, 2018, President’s Holiday Weekend, we’re inviting all men, women, and children of all ages to come visit Rockport Harbor at the Festival Grounds site near Rockport Harbor. On behalf of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, this outdoor exhibit will provide an educational experience with a mobile 53-ft Tractor Trailer Exhibit. There will be ceremonies and events each evening. Saturday of that weekend will feature All First Responders. This holiday weekend will be dedicated to remember the brave men and women who were involved in the tragedy our country endured on Sept. 11, 2001 and all present day First Responders. It is our chance to thank and honor them.  This exhibit will be free of charge. The goal is to provide the community with an eye-opening experience to help "Never Forget".
