Members of the school's ROTC will march the rest of the day -- similar to the march in Washington D.C. at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
And tonight, football fields throughout the Kern High School District will have a 9/11 memorial sticker on their helmets, to help commemorate the occasion.
Hundreds of motorcycle riders will come together for the annual 9/11 memorial ride.
In the past four years, there have been an average of 300 motorcyclist who participate in this remembrance ride.
The main message of this ride -- remind people to never forget.
Friday's riders will meet at Harley Davidson off Merle Haggard Drive at 5 p.m. with kick stands going up at 6:30 p.m.
They will ride to Minter Field in Shafter where there will be greeted by several guest speakers.
Harley Davidson suggests that riders donate $10 to be used in supporting veterans.
Also, Houchin Blood Bank is asking that donors give during their Week of Remembrance blood drive.
Officials said they're more than 1/3 of the way to hitting their goal of nine hundred and eleven donors this week.
All donors will be entered to win a $100 Target gift card as well as get one free adult admission to the Kern County Fair while supplies last.
