Memorial Day is a celebration and commemoration of those who sacrificed their lives in service to our country. Taking place on the final Monday of every May, Memorial Day also often marks the start of summer for many. That’s why there are numerous Memorial Day events in Long Island and the surrounding area, from airshows to barbecues.
According to Discover Long Island, one of the top events in the area is the Memorial Day Weekend Airshow Cruise. There will be several cruises to the event from May 26 to 27 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Tickets for adults are $40, while kids can get in for just $25. Located near the Jones Beach Water Tower, the event will feature the Navy’s Blue Angels or the Air Force’s Thunderbirds as they put on a memorable display. Fun for both children and adults, the Airshow Cruise is one event you won’t want to miss.
