Ann Arbor Memorial Day Parades

There are several Memorial Day Parades in the Ann Arbor area. These parades tend to be simple, respectful parades that often include a remembrance ceremony at a cemetery. Unlike other parades, there usually are not candy giveaways.

Date/Time Event
Dexter Memorial Day Parade
at Monument Park, Dexter Michigan
Memorial Day Parade
at Glacier Highlands Park, Ann Arbor Michigan
Saline Memorial Day Parade
at Downtown Saline, Saline Michigan

There is typically an Arborcrest Cemetery Service. Last year it was at 2p on Sunday. I have not found any details for this year’s event.

Movies for Memorial Day

With cool temperatures and a chance of rain this weekend, a movie is always a great idea. Fortunately there are several good movies in theaters for Memorial Day Weekend…Avengers Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Show Dogs, (and for the adults Deadpool 2). My daughter and I are seeing an advance screening of Solo, so check back after the release for our review and parental guidance tips.
