Before you get a regrettable “I Heart Mom” tat, honor your mother with a delightful garden party. Start the morning meandering through the Lilac Collection while bands and dancers perform on the Daffodil Hill main stage. Eat brunch picnic-style (just make advance reservations), and enjoy a ton of other planned activities on the beautiful landscape. There's usually a bean bag toss, giant chess and guided walking tours through the gardens.
All Garden Pass is $28 and Children are $12. Click HERE to purchase them!
Brooklyn Memorial Day Parade
May 27th, 2019
Catholic war veterans lead Brooklyn service organizations in honor of fallen soldiers and their families in one of the oldest parades in Brooklyn—in fact, it's now in its 152nd year. Sponsored by the United Military Veterans of Kings County, the ceremony kicks off at 11am on Third Avenue and 78th Street in Bay Ridge, then proceeds along Fourth Avenue and ends with a 21-gun salute by the U.S. Army at Fort Hamilton. The NYPD and FDNY will also march, Brooklyn high-school bands will perform, and antique fire trucks and autos will be on display.
The parade is FREE but donations are welcome. Click HERE to find out more.
