The celebrated final day of May, Memorial Day, is just around the corner. The holiday originally began in 1868 to honor fallen military personnel during active duty. It also unofficially marks the true beginning of summer, with several family-friendly options around the metro area to recognize the holiday:
- Alpharetta Arts Streetfest on May 29.
- Memorial Day Weekend at Stone Mountain Park.
- Memorial Day Ceremony at Cauble Park in Acworth on May 29.
- Alpharetta’s Virtual Memorial Day Tribute on May 31.
Regardless of what you end up doing, remember to take a moment to acknowledge the real reason for the occasion.
