Memorial Day is on May 28 and in Boston, this period also happens to be the beginning of summer in this great, modern city. With the warm weather comes tourist season – a time to enjoy the warmth and the great sights and experiences that come with visiting Boston this time of the year.
There are a ton of activities waiting for you in Boston Memorial Day. One of the more well-known events that kick off Memorial Day would be the Garden of Flags event, spearheaded by the Massachusetts Military Heroes organization. A total of 37,000 US flags will be planted at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. This is done to commemorate all the servicemen and women who have offered their lives for the country since the Revolutionary War.
