Memorial Weekend in Denver

Memorial Weekend in Denver

Memorial Weekend in Denver is about to kick off! This American holiday is observed on the last Monday of May each year in honor of the men and women who passed while serving in the military. An honored day, indeed.

Memorial Day Traditions

Cities across the United States often host military-inspired parades and celebrations. Additionally, Amerians place memorials inside cemeteries and wear red poppies in remembrance of fallen soldiers.

Did you know?

At 3:00pm on Memorial Day each year there is a moment of remembrance that takes place?

Others use Memorial Day as a much-needed three day weekend from work and to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer. Parties, barbeques and lake time often top the list of things to do.
