Celebrate Memorial Day

Celebrate Memorial Day!

Memorial Day commemorates all those who have died in any war in the nation’s service, beginning with the Civil War. It is celebrated on the last Monday of May every year.  Despite the somber beginnings of Memorial Day, many Americans think of Memorial Day as the three-day weekend that unofficially marks the beginning of the summer season. Often, families will get together to watch a local parade or go for a picnic in the park or at the beach. Car races such as the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 are run on Memorial Day. Here are some events in the Los Angeles area: 

  • Memorial Day Walk to remember and flag installation at the Santa Monica pier


  • Memorial Day Ceremony at Forest Lawn Cemetery, May 28 1pm 


  • Concert at Sky Rose Chapel at Rose Hills in Whittier
