Waves of pride

I've been trying to figure out what struck me about this shot at the Kenner's Rivertown (Kenner is a suburb of New Orleans). Maybe it's one of those past and present things. The cannon is obviously a thing of the past. You couldn't find anything like that in use today. But, it and guns like it were used to build and protect this country. And the present is the flags that wave out in front. Proudly.

It is a powerful reminder of how we managed to hang onto this country from the beginning.

That's a lot of flags; what's the occasion? Is it a cemetery?
