The last Monday in May in the American calendar is colored red: the festival, which this year (2017) falls on May 29 is Memorial Day, a day dedicated to the celebration of the sacrifice of the life of all men and women , of all times, in the name of the American flag.
An important day, then, where on one side we find a rich program of solemn events with parades and crowns depositions, while the other checked the urge to celebrate this weekend, seen as unofficial start of summer.
If you will be in New York for Memorial Day things to do I am truly many. We have selected the most interesting for you. Remembrance Day isn't just about day-drinking and appreciating the long end of the week it's likewise about respecting the men and ladies who had kicked the bucket while serving in our military. So before you bite down on the best BBQ in the city and line up for the best Memorial Day test sales,remembering the penances made for the red, white and blue.
There are so many memorial day events organized in many cities of United States. let's talk about Memorial Day celebration in New York City.
Memorial Day Parade
Ok, we are in America, and there is no more American celebration or a nice parade patriotic parade. For Memorial Day, New York organizes different, but the title of "most spectacular" if you conquer that which is held in Queens, the Little Neck-Douglaston Memorial Day Parade, considered the largest in the country. Now in its 89sima year, the parade will be held in Northern Blvd. from Great Neck Rd. To 245th Street, starting in the early afternoon, after a morning of solemn celebrations (including the laying of the wreath at the monument in the Divine Wisdom Schoolyard).
Fun for Memorial Day
Of course, Memorial Day lends itself well to be exploited for a day of relaxation and harmony in the family. New Yorkers, in fact, do not miss out on the opportunity to organize a trip to the beach (just reopened Governors Island this weekend) or a nice picnic at one of the best city parks. If you want to decline Memorial Day in this way, just very little: a towel and a lunch box!
