On Memorial Day we take a moment to honor Americans who have fought and died while in service to our country. For many Americans, this past year has been extremely challenging. As more people get vaccinated and outdoor events resume, some towns have decided to bring back their Memorial Day Parades in a safe way. Remember to wear your masks if you and the family decide to head out and celebrate and stay home if anyone is feeling unwell. Memorial Day is also a time of celebration, as it marks the unofficial start to summer and we’ve listed some of the places you can catch a good old fashioned parade. Be sure to check this page frequently as dates, times and participating towns may change.

Looking for a unique way to pay tribute to fallen heroes? Ancestry.com is using the #iSaluteFor hashtag, so you can share stories of military family members. On Monday, there’s a live “50-Story Salute” with members from veteran’s organizations sharing stories of strength and hope.
