GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Wednesday marks the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

It was a day that forever changed the U.S., when nearly 3,000 people were killed on the attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a hijacked plane that went down in Shanksville, PA.

More than a decade later, Americans are still vowing to never forget that day and plan on paying tribute to the victims.

There are several events planned throughout the Upstate. Here are some of them:

Boiling Springs Fire District will hold a public observance. It will take place in front of the 9/11 Memorial at 5020 Pelham Rd. in Greenville County at 9:30 a.m.

The Laurens County community will hold a dedication ceremony from 10:30 a.m. until noon at the Forest Lawn Cemetery at 765 E. Main St. in Laurens.

Langston Charter Middle School in Greenville will hold a remembrance assembly at 2:15 p.m. at 1950 Woodruff Rd.

Downtown Cowpens will hold a vigil at 7 p.m. in Veterans Memorial Park.

In western North Carolina, the Sons of Liberty motorcyclists will ride from Veteran's Park in Columbus, NC to downtown Hendersonville prior to a memorial event scheduled for noon in front of the Henderson County Historic Courthouse.

Students at Clemson and Furman universities placed out thousands of American flags on campus to remember those who lost their lives during the attacks. Click here to read more about their tributes.
