2016 Columbus, Ohio Memorial Day Weekend Events
As the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day Weekend is traditionally a time for breaking out the shorts and T-shirts, firing up the barbecue, get an extra day off from work, and enjoy a relaxing 3-day weekend with family and friends. It’s also a time to enjoy a broad range of activities and special events happening throughout the greater Columbus metro area.
Of course, Memorial Day also has a serious purpose. It’s a day that we set aside to remember the heroic sacrifice the brave members of our Armed Forces have made in service to our country. They paid the ultimate price in defense of our precious freedom and the American way of life that is the envy of the world.
