Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Local remembrances are being held Wednesday on the 12th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

On Vanderbilt's campus, 3,000 flags will remain on the lawn in front of Central Library on Vanderbilt University's campus until 10 p.m. Wednesday.

A 24-hour prayer service got underway at midnight at Faith Hope & Love Fellowship Church on Mt. View Road in Antioch.

Church officials have invited the public to attend to help them remember the more than 3,000 who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The event is being held outside the church.

They have a walking trail, sanctuary and tents to allow people to pray where they feel comfortable. There is also a tent for those who want to take communion.

In Sumner County, the Color Guard of the City of Gallatin Fire Department held a 9/11 memorial service at City hall at 8:46 a.m. That's the time the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center.

At the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office, a ceremony will be held at the new 9/11 memorial from 4 to 8 p.m.

And despite public outcry, fireworks will be held Wednesday night in Lebanon. The city rescheduled the 4th of July fireworks after rain postponed the event. Events start at 4:30 p.m. at the James E Ward Ag Center. The fireworks are set to begin at 9 p.m.
