Memorial Day in Philadelphia is Always Extra Memorable

Memorial Day, which takes place on the last Monday of May, is considered the unoffical kickoff to Summer… and in the historic City of Philadelphia, we know how to celebrate our patriotism in a big way. Every year, Philadelphia hosts a number of grand events and festivities, to embrace the liberty that has been protected by those who have died in the service of our great nation.

Memorial Day in Philadelphia

There is more than enough to see and do during the Memorial Day Weekend, but we still keep in mind that Memorial Day is about much more than fun and festivities. We are mindful that it is all about honoring the military men and women who died while serving their country so that we can enjoy and appreciate the freedoms of this holiday.

Please join us in remembrance this holiday, by taking a moment to bow your head, place your hand across your heart and observe a moment of silence at 3 p.m. Monday for those fallen soldiers who have sacrificed so that we can live in and remain a free nation.

While we observe this holiday for those heroes of our country, we remember what they have sacrificed so much for, and it is in this spirit that we honor them by celebrating to the fullest in fellowship and jubilation. And that’s exactly what Philadelphia provides on this significant holiday, for residents and visitors alike.

Philadelphia has so much to offer during the Memorial Day weekend, it’s nearly impossible to list, (or to attend) all of the various events available.

Here are just a few of the ways we Philadelphians like to live it up for the holiday…

  • Parades
  • Fireworks & Fountains
  • Festivals
  • Concerts
  • Assemblies
  • Memorial Ceremonies
  • Picnics & BBQ’s
  • Walking Tours
  • Family Fun Days
  • Theatrical Presentations
  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Races & Tournaments
  • Charity Fund Raisers
  • Sporting Events

The list is practically endless – we know how to celebrate in style. Wherever you are in the Philadelphia area, there’s something fun and inspiring nearby in which to participate. The spirit of the holiday is alive and well in every locale.

One event in particular that we all look forward to with enthusiastic anticipation is Malvern’s annual Memorial Parade & Family Fun Day. Malvern’s is recognized as the oldest continuously held Memorial parade in America, (since 1869!), and includes several marching bands, military color guards, antique and military vehicles, beautiful floats, fire trucks, and a decorated bicycle procession… loads of fun and entertainment for adults and children alike.

Another annual event worth attending is the Gladwyne Memorial Day Parade & Block Party. This commemorative day is held in the heart of the village, rain or shine. Children are invited to decorate their bikes, wagons, strollers and walk or ride in the parade. The parade is followed by a ceremony honoring our nation’s veterans. Food, fun and entertainment fill the block party and many wear red, white and blue for this very special day.

There are so many other Memorial Day events taking place in Philadelphia… to get a comprehensive list of things to see & do in the area at any time, check the events calendar at Philadelphia’s Official Convention & Visitors site for the latest schedule, news & general Philly info.

And when planning your events and/or travels for Memorial Day, consider using a private, door to door car or limousine service. It simply makes everything safer, more convenient and removes transportation stress – AND it’s surprisingly affordable these days. Even if you’re not ready to make a reservation, it’s well worth a minute of your time to get a fast, no-hassle, no-obligation rate quote, and see just how easy it is to let someone else do the driving while you just relax and enjoy the weekend festivities in store for you in this great City of Philadelphia.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!
