The Memorial Day holiday weekend is here! This is a great time of year to spend time outdoors with your family and friends while you honor the US veterans that have helped to make our country strong and safe.
Memorial Day Weekend signals the start of the Summertime season. You may already have planned a Summer vacation, getaway or home improvement project. And for many people the first thoughts of Memorial Day are filled with excitement, outdoor parties and family fun! We agree this is a great time to get outside and enjoy the company of others. Let’s also remember why we celebrate this holiday. Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States that honors the brave military personnel who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom while serving in the US armed forces. This is the day to pay honor, respect and appreciation for the people that have helped to provide the opportunity for freedoms that we all enjoy in our country.
There are many activities and events that you can take part in this weekend that will give you a special time with your family and friends.
Here are 5 fun activities for Memorial Day weekend.
Participate in a Memorial Day Parade
Many cities and counties have a Memorial Day celebration planned - like a ceremony at a memorial park or a parade! Local parades are always fun as they give the community a chance to get together and celebrate the hometown pride. Some parades encourage local participation, you might even be able to drive your car in the actual parade! Book your Envoy Tesla or Polestar 2 for the parade, it is quiet, great for safely navigating crowds and with zero emissions it keeps the air clean!
Visit a historical museum
Want to learn more about your town? There is probably a local historical museum that shares the history of the town and discusses plans for the future. Studying history is an opportunity to learn and grow. Open discussions allow space to create a better future for generations to come. Learn about your town and the interesting people that live there.
Bring meals or visit a veteran's home
This is a great idea for assisted homes, adult care and other living facilities. You should call the location first and ask what kind of assistance they need. Chances are they already have a program in place but might need help with deliveries. Or they could need help making arrangements to deliver other necessities. You could even plan a small outdoor party for the residents. Either way you need some cargo space for this one. The Envoy Nissan Leaf with the rear seats down has up to 30 cu-ft of rear cargo space.
Plan a neighborhood block party to honor local veterans
Parties are fun and they help to build community! You can invite your neighbors, family, friends and other local groups to share in this Memorial Day celebration. You will need to get the supplies, food, beverages and of course games to make this party stand out. The Envoy Chevy Bolt or Nissan Leaf had plenty of cargo room for big shopping trips. Check out this Nissan Leaf video from a recent Envoy party run!
Visit a National Park
Do you live near a National Park or want to go on a road trip adventure? Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to do it since Monday is a federal holiday. The journey is part of the fun so book the Envoy Polestar 2 to get you wherever you want to go.
Join the electric future!

We thank our Envoy family veterans for their service!
