Memorial Day Weekend Rochester NY

May 20, 2017

As we pause to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we are truly grateful for our freedom.   We can choose where we live, what career we will pursue and what to do with those we love the most!  Please enjoy our guide of area activities and events this Memorial Day Weekend Rochester NY 2017.  Since many will be out and about this coming weekend (a record number of travelers are predicted), it’s best to plan ahead!

Parades

Click here for a 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 volunteer to 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.

 Barbecues

Shout out to Food Network for some great recipe ideas! Ribs? Hots and hamburgs? Wings?  Yes, traditional fare.  But what about hot smoked trout and coffee marinade?  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!  The venue is changed this year and will be at the Barnard Fireman’s Field.

Waterfront Dining

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 all of the waterfront dining available.   Come by land or by sea and enjoy a beautiful view.

 Shopping

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 Offers.com, there are some great prices to be had.   However, don’t underestimate the value in coming to Rochester Design Center.  We have a fabulous network of dealers we work with and we can help you determine what makes sense for your space.  Just because something is on sale, doesn’t mean it will hold value.

Tis the season of garage sales!  Choose carefully so you clutter up your space.

There are also plenty of sales at the Waterloo Premium Outlet

Farm Markets are ready for family fun!  Fruits and Vegetables?  Yes, but check out how much more there is to do and see!  Visit today!

Weather

10 day forecast  is looking a little cloudy, but 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!  If a move is in your future, we’d love to make it happen!  Contact us today for your free guide to buying and selling!
