It is not unusual to hear people begin their summer activities or plans during the Memorial Day weekend. This three-day holiday is considered by many as the official start of summer so there isn’t a better time for the festivities and fun to start than on this long weekend.
Spending Memorial Day Weekend in Arizona
Arizona will host a lot of great activities during the Memorial Day weekend. These include:
- The 2017 Memorial Day Ceremony. To officially honor the memory of the fallen, head to The National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona, which is the venue for the annual Memorial Day Ceremony. Aside from formal observance and commemoration, you’ll also be able to watch the Annual Memorial Day Rally when bikers ride around the state line Cave Creek Road with American flags to salute the military families.
- The Annual Cave Creek Balloon Festival. Watch numerous, colorful hot air balloons as they go up in the air. Aside from being amazed by these balloons, especially when they are lit up at night, you can enjoy live music from local country artists and other performers, and great food.
- Phoenix Comicon. You don’t have to travel to San Diego to channel your inner geek and experience an actual comic con. At the Phoenix Comicon, get the chance to see stars from your favorite geeky films and TV shows, book and comic book authors and artists. You can also join the Cosplay events and attend various panels, too.
