Memorial Day Weekend Activities

"Memorial weekend promises to be busy, filled with flags to fireworks." That's how the Standard-Examiner headlined this article about activities across the Top of Utah.

Additional activities will be held all around the state, from Salt Lake to St George to Moab. Below are excerpts from the Examiner article.

Flags, fireworks, military pomp and ceremonies to remember the dead will fill the Memorial Day weekend throughout Top of Utah.

Veterans groups will place flags on the graves of veterans. Cemeteries will host special memorial services. Leavitt's Aultorest, 836 36th St., Ogden, is even displaying 1,000 American flags to commemorate the estimated 1,000 veterans, going back to the Civil War, who are buried in that cemetery.

Aultorest is also putting on a Saturday night fireworks display.

The annual observances at the Hill Aerospace Museum, 7961 Wardleigh Road, will include installation of another member of the Utah Aviators Hall of Fame and a special memorial in the chapel.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article, with this headline: "Twenty-five things to do if you don't have plans for Memorial Day weekend." It offers suggestions ranging from Veteran's Memorial Services to historic reenactments to family recreation.
