North Myrtle Beach salutes to 9/11 victims

Main Street in North Myrtle Beach

The North Myrtle Beach Lion's Club and the Parks and Recreation Department held a candlelight vigil at 3 p.m. in honor of the victims of 9/11. American flags decorated Main Street in North Myrtle Beach as more than 1,000 people paid tribute to the men and women who died in the September 11th attacks.

The Rolling Thunder Bike Club honored fallen veterans with a commemorative ride down Main Street. Retired New York City Firefighters lined the street as their friends were honored.

2,974 American flags were given out to represent each victim who died.

The day ended with a 21-gun salute, chiming of the fire bell and a memorial wreath that was sent out to sea in honor of the victims and their families.
