At long last we have reached the very precipice of summer: Memorial Day weekend! I have dug the beach chairs out of the garage, taken the grill out for a test run, and I can't wait to plant my feet in the sand and perhaps even in the Sound. There's all kinds of non-beachy fun to be had this weekend too from fairs and festivals to animal encounters, special concerts, 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, the Decoration Day event at Mystic Seaport, and the U.S. Coast Guard Band concert in New London. 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!
