      Cell Phone Tour for Historic Park

      Birmingham's historic Kelly Ingram Park, site of civil rights rallies, demonstrations and confrontations in the 1960s, now offers visitors a guided audio tour through their mobile phones. Thousands of visitors come from around the world each year to learn about Birmingham's pivotal role in a nationwide call for civil rights. Sculptures throughout the park are vivid depictions of police dog and water cannon assaults on demonstrators, many of them children. The mobile phone tour guides visitors through the historical significance of each sculpture, using brief but powerful descriptions at each stop. Developed by the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau, the tour was funded by a grant from the Alabama Tourism Department. The dial-in number is 205-307-5455. http://birminghamal.org/seedo/attractions/full-list-of-attractions/?page=K

      The Country's Oldest and Largest

      Birmingham lays claim to a slew of superlatives, but one of them stands out among the rest. Since 1947 the city has hosted the nation's first and largest National Veterans Day celebration. This year's activities begin November 11 with a wreath-laying ceremony in downtown Linn Park and National Veteran Award Banquet at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. The very popular Veterans Day Parade gets underway Monday, November 12, at 1:30 p.m., packing downtown streets with folks paying tribute to the people who served this country as members of the armed services. For a parade route and other information, go to ww.nationalveteransday.org
