It’s always a pleasant surprise to come across our clients at events, especially when they honor our nation’s heroes. A couple of weeks ago, we spotted the Office of Commemorations with Nomadic portable displays at the Norfolk NATO Festival in Virginia. This year marked the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. The Office of Commemorations had their FabriMural pop up and Swift Banner Stands in the tent where they provided attendees with commemorative buttons and stickers in honor of those that served.
Along a people-packed parade route near the USS Wisconsin Battleship, the Festival featured participation by each NATO country. With its robust 61-year history, the event provides a wonderful opportunity for attendees to enjoy international food, entertainment and to learn what makes each country’s culture unique.
Children were encouraged to pick up a passport and have it stamped by each country as they traveled around the world of NATO, which was a unique and fun experience for the entire family.
This year’s Norfolk NATO Festival was so special it was recognized as one of the Top 20 Events in the state of Virginia.
As Memorial Day approaches, Nomadic Display is honored to have been a part of the NATO Festival, its proud history and commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War!
