Family Activities You Can Do This Weekend

Of course, Memorial Day is about remembering those who lost their lives in active duty, protecting America. It's a weekend we use to remember them and to spend with family.

If you are looking to do both at once here are two events in South Florida, in honour of the weekend, that you can attend.

Fort Lauderdale

In Fort Lauderdale, the U.S. Special Operations Command parachute team will perform a jump on Saturday at the Las Olas Oceanside Park as part of a tribute.

The city’s event from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. also includes performances by live bands, water slides, a classic car show, an art show, and a sand-sculpting contest. The event is free and open to the public.


In Miami Beach, the Hyundai Air & Sea Show is on Saturday and Sunday. The family-friendly displays are visible from the beach along Lummus Park and honor the five branches of the U.S. military and first responders.

“Miami Beach has a rich tradition with the military that dates back to World War II when half a million service members passed through what has been described as the ‘most beautiful boot camp’ in America,” City Manager Alina T. Hudak said in a statement.

A general admission one-day pass starts at $45, the admission to the Saturday concert is $30 or $65 for both.
