The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica Wall, and Mobile Education Center will be coming to Brighton Sept. 2 – 5, 2021. The Wall will be located at Carmichael Park, just behind City Hall (500 S. 4th Avenue),and will be open 24 hours a day and free to the public.
The Wall is transported from community to community in a 53-foot trailer. When parked, the trailer opens with exhibits built into its sides, allowing it to serve as a mobile Education Center telling the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the divisive era in American history.
The three-quarter scale Wall replica is 375 feet in length and stands 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. Visitors will experience The Wall rising above them as they walk towards the apex, a key feature of the design of The Wall in D.C. Visitors are able to do name rubbings of individual service member’s names on The Wall.
