Things to Do This Memorial Day Weekend in Kingston, NY, 5/27-5/30

Memorial Day is a solemn day to honor those who have lost their lives serving our nation and we hope that everyone can attend one of the many Observation ceremonies being held in their community. Kingston’s traditional Memorial Day Ceremony and Parade will be held on Monday May 30th at 1:00 PM.

There are a whole host of things to do here in the Kingston area leading up to the Memorial Day ceremonies. Outdoor events for the active and not-so-active are easy to find, as are tours that reveal our local history, upbeat gatherings for fun-loving adults, and plenty of live music options. Enjoy yourself this weekend, but please keep the true meaning of this holiday weekend in mind.

Don’t forget- It’s always a good time to adopt a new family member. Check out our Furever Friend section on our website here to see some awesome dogs available for adoption at the UCSPCA! Supported by the ever-animal-loving Kimlin Energy!

 

Below are some of our picks for fun and entertaining events on our calendar this week that we think you may not want to miss!

WHOOP DEE DOO presents: a FREE, All-Ages, Live Variety Show! – Looks like a fun event for kids and adults!
