805 Patriot Rallies is coordinating a vehicle caravan on the anniversary of the deadliest attack on US soil on September 11, 2001. The first rally point this September 11th will be at 1300 Janss Road Thousand Oaks, CA, and will eventually arrive in Huntington Beach to participate in the 9/11 Memorial Walk. The walk will start at the Huntington Beach pier sharply at 5:30PM. Americans of all interests and political backgrounds are welcome to join both the Patriot Day Caravan and the 9/11 Memorial Walk as long as you love our Country and believe in Freedom of Speech and Freedom to Assemble for all Americans.
Last year many Ventura County residents held caravans in their own cities, and gathered at the Thousand Oaks muster to join the balance of the caravan heading for Huntington Beach. Caravan coordinator Charles Dimauro anticipates the caravan could swell to as many as 200 vehicles. Additional meeting locations are in Pasadena and Costa Mesa as noted on their flyer. The caravan will hit each location along the route to Huntington Beach and leave at the times in the flyer to allow the caravan to grow along the route. Most of the vehicles in the caravan will be either displaying the American Flag, or have an American Flag theme to their vehicle, but don’t let that discourage you from participating. All are welcome. The Patriot Day Caravan and any interested citizens who want to come to the event at the Huntington Beach Pier will meet there at 4:30PM. Local politicians will be joining the caravan and many will speak in Huntington Beach either before or after the Memorial Walk. If you are interested in communicating with the organizers of the caravan or walk, they can be contacted on Instagram at 805Patriot.rallies, RealAliWilbourn, OurNatrion6 or MarkPsocal323
The walk itself can be enjoyed by all participants, regardless of their physical limitations. Be sure to bring some water to keep hydrated. American Flags, whether they are pinned to your hat, or carried on a pole as you walk are recommended. Patriotic songs will be sung and encouraged.
