Traditionally, the Memorial Day holiday is meant to be celebrated as a time of remembrance, for those who have died in the service of their country.


But the weekend that precedes this observance has also become a time for celebrating the return of summer, with picnics, parades, live music under the stars, and a host of other outdoor activities -- and this year is no exception.
