Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2022 will occur on Monday, May 30.
Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades.
Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the season. Glorious spring days on the Mid-coast of Maine are what we look forward to each season. Sparkling water, a cool sea breeze and everything is going green. It’s a magical time to be here in Maine, and a quiet one shared by those in the know.
Old-fashioned Memorial Days observances are the kind of things we hold on to and what keeps bringing you back once more.
Stay tuned for the calendar of events.
