Memorial Day Weekend in DC

Memorial Day Weekend in DC

Memorial Day is more than a three-day weekend marking the beginning of summer. This day has a history stretching back all way to the Civil War and is an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.  In 2004 an outpouring of appreciation to the veterans of World War II spilled over to veterans of the more recent wars. A former Mayor of Washington, D.C., was so moved by this parade that he was instrumental in reinstating it as an annual event in conjunction with the American Veterans Center.  Now, every year on Memorial Day, this three hour parade passes alongside the National Mall on Constitution Avenue between 7th and 17th Streets in a magnificent salute to America's Veterans, and in honor of those who died in the defense of our country.  The parade consists of select marching bands and veteran units from each of the 50 States honoring World War I, World War II, The Korean and Vietnam Conflicts, Desert Storm, and the Liberation of Grenada, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan. Large Patriotic floats and helium-filled balloons are also part of the procession. More than 10,000 participants take part in the parade each year. Join us for this as we pay tribute to America's Heroes in the Nation’s Capital, with unique experiences designed to enhance and expand this celebration of the selfless service of our active duty military, veterans and their families.
