There are some great Las Vegas events scheduled for Memorial Day. First called Decoration Day, it is a day for all of us to remember those who have died during service while defending our freedom. Vegas honors the military in a variety of different ways.
What’s Memorial Day without a Parade?
Head downtown if you want to see a great parade. The Downtown Las Vegas Memorial Parade is sponsored by the City of Las Vegas and VFW Post 1753. It starts at 4th and Gass and ends at 4th and Ogden. After the parade there will be entertainment on Fremont Street.
Boulder City Southern Nevada Memorial Cemetery
Every year Boulder City honors Memorial Day by having a gathering of families and city officials at the Southern Memorial Cemetery. They honor those who have sacrificed with their lives while serving our country.
Piano! Las Vegas Honors Vets with Free Show Ticket
Some of us from the Las Vegas Press Club recently attended the National U.S. Hong Kong Business Association Las Vegas Conference and were treated to some great piano playing by Ryan Ahern. I’m excited to say that Ryan and his Piano! Las Vegas show is offering free show tickets to veterans and active military personnel this Memorial Day.
Ryan’s spectacular show is at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. It’s inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the V Theater. Six of Vegas’ greatest musicians back up Ryan. Their music covers a wide gamut of arrangements. Contemporary medleys, favorite hits, movie themes, and Ryoan’s own award-winning Boogie Woogie.
Tickets are first come, first served and are only available on May 30th. All you have to do to get your free ticket is show your DAV ID card (Disabled American Veterans ID), your VIC identification (Veteran Identification Card), or your CAC (Common Access Card) to the V Theater box office.
Free Burgers for Military Members at Smashburger
Smashburger (yummy!) is honoring members of the military with a whopping 1/3 pound Smashburger from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. It’s your choice what kind you want. That, my friends, is worth the trip.
Don’t forget to thank all those who have served and are currently serving in our military.
