Memorial Day 2020 Events: Memorial Day in the United States traditionally marks the start of the summer season. It’s on the last Monday of May.

It’s known for the dance music community, festival, and pool party season. Maybe not this year as US Coronavirus outbreak, unless you’re in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

Also, many of us look forward to Memorial Day for the epic sales, backyard barbecues, and boozy summer cocktails.

However, it’s important to remember what the holiday is truly about. It’s honoring the men and women who have sacrificed their lives. They served U.S. Armed Forces for our freedom.
