Memorial Day Weekend Guide Rochester NY
May 19, 2016
Hey Rochester Design Center Friends! Glad you’re back. As we pause next weekend, to honor those who have so valiantly served , we are truly grateful for our freedom. We can choose where we live, what career we will pursue (like opening a super cool lifestyle store) and how we spend time with those that matter most. Please enjoy our updated Memorial Day Weekend Guide for Rochester which includes Memorial Day Parades, ceremonies, shopping and more. Since many will be out and about (a record number of travelers are predicted) , it’s best to plan ahead!
RochesterKidsOutandAbout.com has put together a great list of parades in the area. Nothing says Memorial Day like flying a flag and watching the local parade. Many groups march in more than one parade! How awesome that so many volunteers serve the community in this way. If you have been before, you know there comes a point in time, a special moment, when you realize freedom is not free, and how fortunate we are to live in this country. If you’re in the city for Memorial Day Weekend, here’s the scoop: Rochester Memorial Day Parade: Monday, May 30th at 10:30am. Parade forms at Alexander and East Avenue, proceeds along East Avenue to Main Street, then west on Main Street to North Plymouth Avenue. Yes, the parade route goes right by our store!
Delish has got the dish on what’s great for Memorial Day which also includes what’s easy! Strawberry Salsa! Killer Pasta Salads. With so many choices, there is bound to be something in your wheelhouse that you can make! In fact, you can look forward to some grilling samples at Rochester Design Center Roc once we’re up and running! And, by the way, if you are throwing a great Memorial Day bash, it just takes a second to add some extra touches to decorate. Every now and then, Martha does come through with some easy ideas.

Definitely food for thought! However, if you’d like to watch the masters at work, don’t forget the ROC City Rib Fest! The competition is fierce, which makes the food for the rest of us just plain excellent! It starts on Friday of Memorial Day Weekend in Genesee Valley Park and benefits Golisano Children’s Hospital. It’s only five dollars!
Many boaters will take to the water this weekend. Lots of fun in the sun, and plenty of places to pull up and catch a quick bite! Click here for a listing of some of the great waterfront dining available in Rochester NY. Come by land or by sea and enjoy a beautiful view.
There will be plenty of sales to be had this weekend whether you are working on your yard, creating that outdoor living room or looking for a new car. According to Deal News, Memorial Day Weekend has some of the best sales of the year and some of them have started already. Here’s a guide to what to buy and what not to buy in the month of May! Tis the season of garage sales! Locate them by map! Of course, once Rochester Design Center Roc opens, we can be included as one of your go-to destinations for all things furniture, fixtures, and finds!
10-day forecast is looking okay right now, but it’s Rochester. Even if it should slightly rain on our parade, we have so much to be thankful for!
One of the greatest freedoms we can pursue is home ownership! Contact us today to make your move if you’d like to embrace a new space.
