Celebrate Memorial Day In The Great Outdoors
With Memorial Day just a few days away, it is time to honor the men and women who lost their lives fighting for our nation. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is celebrated throughout the country to dedicate a day to all the sacrifices those in the Armed Forces have been throughout our country’s lifetime.
Before you head off to celebrate Memorial Day, try to attend a local Memorial Day event, such as a parade or cemetery observance. You can still enjoy your day off from work, but take a moment to remember the lives lost and the sacrifices made.
Memorial Day Parades:
- Scotia – Scotia’s 87th Memorial Day Parade will be held on Mohawk Avenue starting at 6p.m.
- Albany – The Albany Memorial Day Parade will begin at 9am at Ontario Street and Central Ave and proceeds east on Central Ave.
One of the best ways to celebrate Memorial Day is by taking a moment to enjoy the great outdoors in one of the many local parks in our hometown. We recommend fixing up a picnic lunch at one of these parks to enjoy your day off and celebrate Memorial Day:
- Lincoln Park – This historical landmark features one of the only outdoor, non-wading swimming pools, along with basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball fields, and football fields. There is so much fun to be had at this historic venue that is often filled with partygoers, concertgoers, and festivalgoers.
- Washington Park – While there is so much natural beautiful throughout Washington Park, there are also a magnitude of man-made masterpieces to enjoy on nearly every corner of the park. You can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities at Washington Park, in the very place where the famous Annual Tulip Festival takes place year after year.
- Jennings Landing – Located along the beautiful Hudson River, this amazing park even has a 1,000-seat amphitheater for guests to enjoy for various events and festivals. There is also a boat launch and bike trail for travelers to venture.
Happy Memorial Day! We hope you enjoy the local Memorial Day parades before heading over to one of these local parks to enjoy your day off from work! Contact Scautub Agency in Scotia for all of your New York insurance needs.
