How To Spend Memorial Day in Addison

Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor those who have served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice. It’s a special day for those who have family members who have served in the military. A day to gather with family and friends and share stories, memories and make sure the memory of those that are no longer with us is not forgotten.

This year we wanted to share some ideas on how you can spend Memorial Day, whether or not you have lost someone while serving in the military, there are many ways to honor those who have.

A great tradition for many is to tune in to the National Memorial Day Concert. The concert will take place on Sunday, May 30 at 8:00 p.m. on PBS and online on their website. If you cannot watch it live, it will remain on their website for two weeks. According to PBS, “On the eve of Memorial Day, a star-studded lineup will grace the stage for one of PBS’s highest-rated programs. This multi-award-winning television event honors the military service and sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform, their families, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.” Watch the concert live on

A great way to spend a few hours during Memorial Day weekend is by visiting the Cavanaugh Flight Museum at Addison Airport. “The Cavanaugh Flight Museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization devoted to promoting aviation studies and to perpetuating America’s aviation heritage; the museum fulfills its mission by restoring, operating, maintaining, and displaying historically-significant, vintage aircraft, and by collecting materials related to the history of aviation.” They have an amazing collection of planes and helicopters that have been part of different wars. It’s truly an amazing place!
