Remembering Memorial Day

Whether your Memorial Day plans include picnics, camping, or other family fun, please take some time to remember those who have fought for our freedom.

The Minnesota History Center is holding special activities on Memorial Day, as is Historic Fort Snelling, where veterans receive free admission on Monday.

Consider paying your respects at Fort Snelling National Cemetery or another national burial ground, or attend a Memorial Day observation in any number of cemeteries or town halls around the state.

Have a fun and relaxing weekend, but please remember why it is that we have this holiday.
