CLIFTON - More than 1,000 flags are flying on the 'Avenue of Flags' in Clifton today in observance of Memorial Day.

Every Memorial Day, hundreds of volunteers gather at City Hall to help put up the 1,500 flags. Clifton resident Tom Zangara says it's become a tradition for him as a way of honoring his father.

Clifton's Memorial Day parade was held this morning on Allwood Road.
