At the end of May, Americans celebrate Memorial Day to honor the memory of the men and women who sacrificed their lives while serving the cause of freedom. This holiday was first celebrated after the Civil War to remember fallen servicemen and women. Although the origins of Memorial Day are somber, today the holiday is also a celebration of freedom and helps kick off the summer season for people all over Boston, with Memorial Weekend events, parades, and ceremonies.

At the Cambridge Memorial Day Parade in 2015, thousands flock to Harvard Square to celebrate American heroes in uniform. This Memorial Day parade in Boston features marching bands, active duty military personnel, and veterans from conflicts ranging from World War II to Iraq. The parade begins at the Cambridge Common and features a cannon salute by the Massachusetts Bicentennial Battery before winding through the city and ending at the Cambridge Cemetery.

The Memorial Day Service takes place at Veterans Memorial Park, where families and patriots go to commemorate those who served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. And at the Boston Common, the Massachusetts Military Heroes plant the annual Garden of Flags, a sight both solemn and stunning with it twenty thousand flags placed in front of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.

With everything from Memorial Day ceremonies to patriotic parades, Memorial Day 2015 in Boston offers a wide range of options for remembering the lives lost in service.
