Each year we set aside time to honor those who gave their lives while in military service. People across the country will spend Memorial Day remembering those loved ones they lost while others will spend it with friends and family celebrating what so many fought hard to protect. Below are some Memorial Day celebrations and events going on in Brevard County along with other ideas of how to spend your Memorial Day weekend.

Things To Do:
Whether it’s in your backyard or a at local park, you can’t go wrong with a BBQ on Memorial Day! With a day off of work most guests will already be on the chipper side, so entertainment will not be too difficult. Just make sure you have enough sitting area for the adults to socialize, and if you’re going to have a few kids over maybe have some games/activities on hand – football, silly string, area for tag, sparklers, etc. Lastly and most importantly…the food! You can easily scale up or down the menu to fit your budget or time constraints and still keep everyone full and smiling!
I don’t know of many things that go together better then Memorial Day & the beach! Unfortunately everyone else feels the same, so make sure you pack extra patience for parking!
Baseball Game and Fireworks:

Take me out to the ball game!!! Brevard County Manatees will be playing the Jupiter Hammerheads all weekend right here at the Space Coast Stadium in Viera. Each night will feature a different promotion: Friday is Military Appreciation Night, Saturday will feature post game fireworks and Sunday is Bark in the Park (bring your dog along for the fun).
