Also known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of every May. It is a time to memorialize and pay tribute to all the fallen men and women who have died serving our country while in the military.
Atlanta Memorial Day Celebrations
Beyond specific military events and parades that salute the troops and remember the fallen, there are also numerous events in the Atlanta that are geared toward family fun over the three-day weekend that typically announces the kick-off to summer.
Some Memorial Day events in the Atlanta area include the Atlanta Jazz Festival, the Decatur Arts Festival, and the Run Walk and Blue 1K and 5K.
Of course, Atlanta also has many parks that are perfect for enjoying the three-day weekend, including barbecues. There are also many block parties and picnics this time of year, which is a great opportunity to enjoy friends and family.
Flowers for Memorial Day
Flowers are a great idea for Memorial Day, including flower arrangements, bouquets, or wreathes for the graves of soldiers at local Atlanta cemeteries. Flowers can also be used for Memorial Day floats in parades, wreathes placed at local government buildings, and patriotic flower arrangements for centerpieces at parties and events for this special occasion.
We’ve got a number of special patriotic themed arrangements with flowers in shades of red, white, and blue.
