Celebrate Memorial Day on a Budget

Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer, as Americans salute and honor the memory of military heroes with grand parades and barbecues. Here are five fun ways to celebrate this holiday without blowing your budget.

Watch the National Memorial Day Concert from home. You don’t have to head out to Washington, D.C. this year to watch the National Memorial Day Concert. PBS will be broadcasting the annual concert on Sunday, May 31, at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. As always, the concert will feature performances and tributes filmed from around the country to honor our service people who gave their all. Click here to access the livestream!
