The City of West Jordan is holding a Patriot Day Tattoo Friday, September 11th. This “tattoo” is not designed to be imprinted on skin but rather in the hearts of those who take part in this sensory feast. The Patriot Day Tattoo is patterned after the world-famous Edinburgh, Scotland Tattoo where pipe bands, drummers, military regiments, dancers have performed. The West Jordan Patriot Day Tattoo will remember Patriot Day with a 1,500-flag Healing Field, pipe bands, drum corps, the 23rd Army Band, Highland Dancers, a joint service color guard and other entertainment. A marketplace with arts, crafts, and ethnic foods opens at 5:00 p.m. and can be enjoyed before and during the Tattoo entertainment. For more information, call Julie Brown at (801) 569-5119.
