Memorial Day in Austin 2019 - Ways to Honor and Celebrate

Memorial Day in Austin is observed in many ways from festivals to parades to pool parties.

Memorial Day weekend of 2019 in Austin can be about both. Read below to learn about ways to both honor our veterans and celebrate a long-awaited return to summer.

Ways to Honor U.S. Veterans

  • Wear or Display a Red Poppy - This is a widely recognized symbol honoring soldiers who have died in conflict.

  • Pause at 3:00 p.m. on May 27th - The National Monument of Remembrance resolution asks us to pause for a moment to reflect on sacrifices made by those in our military every Memorial Day at 3:00. 

  • Display the U.S. Flag - Fly the flag at half-staff from sunrise until 12:00 p.m on May 27th to commemorate those who have died.

  • Visit a National Cemetery or Memorial - Visit the graves of fallen soldiers and honor them with flowers.
