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.

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.
