Try to get close to the flag poles to watch this event. Anticipate the cannon salute so you can plug your ears if need be. Depending on how many flags are present it could take a while to get them all down and folded. They try to play the anthems of each country represented and, in the case of an event that would cause them to fly old glory at half staff, they will play taps. The announcer is on the roof above the Lime Kiln Cafe and will recognize birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events being celebrated by folks who are in the harbor that day. The event is advertised as occurring at "dusk" but you should arrive at least 30 to 45 minutes before sunset or you will miss it.
