Memorial Day Yacht Party in Los Angeles

May 21, 2013 —  In the U.S., Memorial Day is first and foremost a day of remembrance, when Americans across the nation commemorate the courageous service of men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.

Culturally, the last Monday in May has become the unofficial start of summer in America. Red, white, and blue-clad citizens head to barbecues to pound brewskis with family and friends, chow down on grilled meats, and enjoy the (hopefully) sunny skies and warm summer breeze.

Memorial Day also inspires a host of patriotic parties in America’s biggest metropolises, like the 10th Annual Memorial Day Yacht Party in Los Angeles. Uncle Sams and Aunt Samanthas will have to apply their sunscreen before hopping aboard the FantaSea One to enjoy four hours of karaoke, dancing, tasty food, and a cash bar.

Meanwhile, Washington, D.C., denizens can celebrate the true meaning of the holiday by lining Constitution Avenue (with 250,000 other revelers) for the 2013 National Memorial Day Parade. Emotion is high at this capital-city soiree, as active duty and retired military members march by and wave to the thankful crowd. 

Though June’s solstice serves as the official beginning to America’s hottest season, no date gets patriots more excited for summer than Memorial Day.
