Celebrate Memorial Day 2012 in NYC

Memorial Day Weekend in New York City is a great time of year.  Fleet week is in full swing and throughout the city you will find great events to enjoy.  Here is our list of some fun events that will be taking place in New York next Monday:

Free Annual Memorial Day Concert

New York Philharmonic and The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine will be hosting their annual free Memorial Day concert.  The concert begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are available on a first- come, first-served basis.  Tickets will be given out beginning at 6:15 the night of the concert.

Memorial Day Parades

Unlike many holidays, Manhattan doesn’t have a show-stopping parade that trumps all others.  There is a parade that travels on Broadway from Dyckman Street, but it’s not New York’s biggest.  The Queens Memorial Day parade is reportedly bigger, and the Brooklyn parade has been around for 145 years!

Fleet Week

As we’ve said, Memorial Day is right in the heart of Fleet Week, and there are plenty events to take part in.  Check out the full fleet week schedule on their website for some fun ideas.
