Arlington National Cemetery holds three annual services that are open to the public. One of those services is held on Easter Sunday at Arlington’s Memorial Amphitheater. The sunrise service begins at 6 a.m. and attracts about 5,000 visitors.
Building the Amphitheater was the initiative of Judge Ivory G. Kimball who wanted a place to gather and honor the members of our military. Congress authorized the construction on March 4, 1913 and the Amphitheater was dedicated on May 15, 1920. The other two services that are open to the public are on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
