How to Have the Perfect Memorial Day

Memorial Day is right around the corner, so here are some tips that can help you enjoy the holiday that kicks off summer!

What is Memorial Day?

Memorial day is a national holiday in America for remembering those who have fallen while serving in the armed forces. The holiday usually falls on the last Monday in May, and it is also known as marking the unofficial start of the summer season.

When is Memorial Day?

This year, Memorial Day falls on May 29th.

How to celebrate Memorial Day

Here are some fun ideas that will help you have a successful Memorial Day:

Get in the spirit early in the day by attending your local Memorial Day Parade.

Parades are the best way to start any day. Your local newspaper should have the details of what time and where the parade starts. Check to see when your local parade is >>

If you’re having a cookout, plan the menu in advance and include staples like hot dogs, potato salad, and corn on the cob.

Nothing says happy summer than the first cookout of the season! Plan your menu out and buy all the ingredients a couple of days in advance so you don’t have to deal with the last minute shoppers.

Make things patriotic by buying American-themed decorations.

You can also make your own! Paint mason jars red, white, and blue and put American flags in them, or cut out big stars out of colored construction paper and hang them up.

If you’re having a cookout make sure you have a backup plan in case it rains. 

Bring the party indoors, or buy some canopies to provide dry spots to your guests.

Pay your respects to those who have fallen by visiting a cemetery for veterans.

This day is all about honoring those who have fought for our country, and you can pay your respects by stopping by a cemetery and placing American flags by the fallen.

Help support the families of these heroes by visiting TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors). >>

While you’re preparing for a great weekend, let our local, insured professionals mow for you! >>

Why lawn mow before Memorial Day? Because you can have a beautiful, maintained  lawn for all of your guests and neighbors to admire!  

Look in your local paper to see if there are any Memorial Day Events going on near you.

There are usually town BBQs or post-parade activities for everyone to enjoy!
