At WH Candy we truly want to make your Memorial Day celebration the best ever which is why we offer a variety of personalized favors and gifts for your Memorial Day party. No party planned this year? Don’t worry here are a few additional hints on how to make this Memorial Day extra special.
Beach It: In many places Memorial Day is the official opening day for public beaches so grab your towel, sunscreen, food and friends for a nice relaxing (yet probably crowded) day at the beach. No beach in sight? Try the pool; a slightly less exciting but still excellent option for the start of your summer.
Plan a Camping Trip: Nothing says Memorial Day like the smell of campfire, bug spray and char-grilled hot dogs. Find the perfect location, round up some buddies and spend an ideal weekend being at one with nature.
Take Me Out to the Ballgame: A favorite American pastime and the official sport of summer, catching a baseball game is sure to liven your Memorial Day. Make sure to stock up on plenty of peanuts and Cracker Jacks and root, root, root for your favorite team!
Fire up the Grill: Looking to stay home this Memorial Day? Be sure to get your grill going with at least two Memorial Day staples: hamburgers and hot dogs. Add some macaroni salad, potato chips and corn on the cob and you’re in for a classic Memorial Day feast.
Catch a Parade: Some of the nation’s biggest parades take place Memorial Day weekend so check out a local parade to truly get into the red, white and blue spirit. Feel like traveling? Visit one of the largest most exciting Memorial Day parades in the country in Chicago, New York City or Los Angeles.
No matter what you do this Memorial Day don’t forget to take a moment to thank all of the fallen soldiers who fought hard to make our beautiful country what it is today. And, finally, be sure to have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend.
