Memorial Day 2020

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and, as with many recent events, we’re continuing to seek new and innovative ways to participate during social distancing. This year, some traditional activities may be off limits, but that certainly doesn’t mean your holiday has to be! Here are some things you can do this upcoming Memorial Day weekend:


 If you normally go to a restaurant, bring the restaurant home to you! Dress up a picnic table with a festive table cloth, a basket of bread, and your favorite fixin’s—and whether you cook or carry out, treat yourself to something special.


Alternatively, you can still have your own cookout right at home while socially distancing; consider making a little extra for neighbors or for people without access to cookout equipment as a way to share the day. Here’s a variety of mouthwatering ideas for Memorial Day dishes.


Spruce up your home–and yourself–with red, white, and blue! Whether flying a flag, using red, white, or blue towels or dinnerware, or wearing your finest patriotic fashion, any of these festive colors make for a great way to quickly bring the day to life.

Attend this year’s Memorial Day tribute—virtually. With the national parade that’s normally held in Washington, D.C. being canceled this year, a special broadcast entitled The National Memorial Day Parade: America Stands Tall will be aired on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox stations.

 What are you doing in honor of Memorial Day this year? What are you wearing, cooking–what places are you visiting?
