Celebrating Memorial Day Weekend 2013 on Long Island
Enjoy a Weekend's Worth of Fun with Friends & Family
Memorial Day is both a time of new beginnings and a time of remembrance. We celebrate the unofficial start of summer with fairs, shows, concerts, festivals, boating and backyard barbeques. But Memorial Day is first of all a day to remember—to honor the soldiers who died, making it possible for us to enjoy all these things. This year’s guide is filled parades, memorial tributes and commemoration ceremonies around the Island to honor the fallen heroes of America’s wars, along with relaxing, fun-filled activities to welcome the summer season.  So remember to remember our heroes—and enjoy—this Memorial Day weekend!
