At its heart, Memorial Day is a day to honor all the men and women who have died in U.S. military service.
Here is a list of events happening in the Spokane area to honor the holidays and enjoy the long weekend.
Medical Lake will not hold a public ceremony for Memorial Day this year; however, a virtual Memorial Day celebration will be available on the Facebook page of the cemetery.
Although the cemetery does not hold a public ceremony, WDVA said it remains committed to honoring veterans with the solemn dignity and respect they have earned through their service and sacrifice. The cemetery will feature wreaths donated by community groups. Stationary flags will be hoisted at mid-range until noon, as usual, before being hoisted to full staff at noon.
The event will take place on Sunday, May 30 and start at 5 p.m. There will be live music, beer garden, classic car show and free hot dogs! All proceeds from the event will benefit 2nd Harvest Food Bank.
The Green Bluff Farm Market is now open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Memorial Day weekend is their opening weekend and in addition to all the goods and products available, they provide their famous opening weekend donuts!
