Memorial Day marks the first day of summer for most. Everyone is eager to get outside an enjoy warm weather. It’s a day of remembrance of all the soldiers that fought in the armed forces. Picnics, barbecues, fireworks, these are just a few of Memorial Day Activities. What is your favorite way of celebrating?

Maybe it’s a day filled with friends and family gathered at a local park or even your house. Grilling classic American dishes, and ending the night with a traditional bon fire. Spend the day listening to classic American songs, munching on hot dogs or hamburgers. Wear your favorite red, white and blue outfit drinking a favorite cocktail.

Are your lucky enough to live by the ocean?Arrange plans to be oceanside. Either on the white fluffy sand, or in a boat rocking on the waves. Spend all afternoon catching rays, eating club sandwiches, and reminiscing with good friends. Might as well toss that pole into the water and see what good catches you can reel in. When the sun goes down, experience the fireworks from the nearby boardwalk. They light up the water.

Perhaps a camping excursion high up on the mountains. Bring a kayak to make things more interesting. Hike all day, take great pictures,(don’t forget to tag them#woolxinaction) then settle in for the night watching the stars or listening,to nearby fireworks while roasting up some smores.

Gather your red checkered picnic blanket along with some great snacks and head out for the day. Bring along your swimsuit. Find a favorite trail to venture out on. After a long hike, you can jump into a popular local swimming hole. A fun filled day of floating on an inner tube, or jumping in from a steep ledge. Wind down at dusk with some fun sparklers, and a cheers with an American beer.
