*A nontraditional look at a very traditional holiday because sometimes levity is needed.
This is not intended to disparage the men and women who have given everything for my freedom. I am extremely grateful and humbled by their sacrifice.
In my search for Memorial Day events, I came across the number one which lead me down the rabbit hole searching other nontraditional Memorial Day events.
4. Ohio Ice Cream Festival

3. LAPD’s Walk the Talk Parade
LAPD as in Los Angeles Poverty Department. What? Did you think I meant this LAPD?
2. Captain Morgan’s Club Pig Roast
Aargh, aye matey, well shiver my timbers if I didn’t want to eat roast pig with a bunch of wenches on Memorial Day.
1. NYC Zombie Crawl Old poster but I like this image better than this year’s.
Can you think of a better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a Zombie crawl? I sure can’t.
