Memorial Day Weekend

Looking for something fun, healthy and active to do over the holiday weekend? Here are a few suggestions to get out and enjoy:
  • Journey back to a lost world of prehistoric chills and thrills when more than 20 dinosaurs (including T. Rex) and over-sized ancient insects return to Powell Gardens.
  • Oceans of Fun opens for the 2011 season!
  • Rainforest Adventure - A multi-sensory expedition that introduces children to tropical rainforests around the world.
  • Jiggle Jam Family Fest - Midwest's largest and best family music returning for a fourth fantastic year, featuring national and local children's entertainers.
  • Walk a dog, throw a Frisbee, catch some fish! Here is a link to some of the areas best parks.
  • Take a day trip and check out another community. Great walking and exploring opportunities. Here are a few within an hours drive.
  • Visit Liberty Memorial and learn about those who served our country in World War I. This should be a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
Enjoy and be safe.
