One of our long standing signature events is the Tribute to Heroes Ceremony. This event recognizes the amazing heroes and individuals that have made positive contributions to our community! Heroes that have been nominated and selected will be honored at our Tribute to Heroes in-person event (Thursday, June 15th, 2023) at the Doubletree, will be featured on KCRG, and act as Grand Marshal in the Freedom Festival Parade (returning to downtown Cedar Rapids Saturday, June 24th, 2023)!
