It may have been a mild winter, but after a cool and rainy spring that seemed endless, it's hard to believe that here we are at Memorial Day weekend, the very cusp of summer. We plan to plant our feet in the sand and perhaps even in the Sound, but there's all kinds of non-beachy fun to be had this weekend too from fairs and festivals to animal encounters, special museum exhibits, and more.
Whatever your plans, the significance of Memorial Day should not be forgotten. If you're looking for an educational way to honor the men and women who died in service to our nation, our Event Calendar features many kid-friendly parades and ceremonies, including the Revolutionary War Encampment in Wethersfield and the Decoration Day event at Mystic Seaport. We've also rounded up parades and other activities in Eastern Connecticut. To keep up with everything going on in CT, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Wishing you the very best Memorial Day weekend!
