Ways to enjoy Memorial Weekend in North Dakota

27 May

This weekend is the “unofficial” start of summer!  Many visitors to North Dakota will be camping and enjoying the great outdoors.  I’d like to share a couple of special events on our calendar and great ways to pay tribute to Veterans.

In honor of servicemen and women, the North Dakota State Parks will have free day admission in all parks on Monday.

Memorial Motorcycle Rally, May 29-31 in Devils Lake – Three days of riding, games, activities and a steak fry.  Rodeo too.

Skydance Sakakawea, May 29-31 at Fort Stevenson State Park, Garrison – An annual kite flying festival with stunt kites, demonstrations and more.

Memorial Weekend Celebration, May 29-31 at Fort Abercrombie State Historic Site – Tours, laying of wreaths, classes and more.

Memorial Day Ceremony

The 2010 Memorial Day Ceremony at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery will take place at noon Monday, May 31. This annual event honors all deceased American servicemen and women and is free to the public.   The cemetery is 6.5 miles south of Mandan, N.D., on Highway 1806.

Numerous ceremonies will be taking place throughout North Dakota.  Please contact local convention and visitor bureaus for details.
