What are your plans for Memorial Day 2016?
This Memorial Day, do something to honor those who gave their lives while serving in the nation’s armed forces. Instead of lighting up the barbecue and opening a beer, participate in a parade and take a moment to honor those who defended our country.
Here are a few ways that you can honor Memorial Day in Illinois:
- Aurora, IL Memorial Day Parade
The annual Memorial Day Parade will take place on Monday, May 30, 2016, with step-off at 12:00 p.m. This year’s theme is “In Memory of Many…In Honor of All”. The parade will begin at Benton and River, ending at River Street. Check out more information about the parade here.

- Run in the 2016 Soldier Field 10 Mile Event
Run to raise funds for Salute, Inc., an organization dedicated to meeting the financial, physical, and emotional needs of military service members, veterans, and their families.

- Chicago’s Memorial Day Parade
