BOOTS ON THE SQUARE
- Courthouse Square, Washington and Jefferson Streets
- 100 Northside Square
- Huntsville, AL 35801
The simple concept of this event is to have pairs of shoes --of all kinds brought to the Courthouse Square to honor veterans’ service in citizens’ lives. Each pair of shoes will tell the story of a veteran, or the person honoring the veteran.
The porch surrounding the Courthouse will be designated as space for honoring veterans who have died, either in combat, natural causes, or through suicide. A special section on the Courthouse Porch will be designated for veterans loss of life through suicide. During the Veterans Day Weekend, citizens will honor deceased veterans by observing silence while on the Courthouse porch while viewing the display of shoes.
