Memorial Day in Fairport

15 May

As we pause to honor those who have so valiantly served next weekend, we are truly grateful for our freedom.   We can choose where we live, what career we will pursue and what to do with those we love the most!  Please enjoy our guide of area activities and events this Memorial Day Weekend.  Since many will be out and about this Memorial Day Weekend (a record number of travelers are predicted) , it’s best to plan ahead!


for a list of parades in the area.   Nothing says Memorial Day like flying a flag and watching the local parade.  The Fairport Parade is at 10:00 am on Monday! Many groups march in more than one parade!  How awesome that so many volunteer to serve the community in this way.  If you have been before, you know there comes a point in time, a special moment, when you realize freedom is not free, and how fortunate we are to live in this country.


Shout out to All Recipes for some great Memorial Day Ideas!   Ribs? Hots and hamburgs? Wings?  With over 370 choices, there is bound to be something in your wheelhouse that you can make!  Definitely food for thought!  However, if you’d like to watch  the masters at work, don’t forget the ROC City Rib Fest!  The competition is fierce, which makes the food for the rest of  us, just plain excellent!
