Memorial Day weekend is one of the busiest weekends during the year in SLO County. With so many activities planned, it’s easy to see why many are drawn to the beaches or mountains for their favorite form of relaxation. But, you don’t have to go far to find a relaxing spot that won’t pull out all the stops.
Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy the outdoors. Here are some great Memorial Day Weekend events that are happening in San Luis Obispo County.
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – Each year the community gathers to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Due to the pandemic, many annual events were cancelled or modified to accommodate the restrictions. Below are some ways to honor our military heroes during Memorial Day weekend. Atascadero’s Faces of Freedom The Atascadero Veterans Memorial Foundation (AVMF) will hold its annual meeting on Monday, May 31. At noon, the annual memorial service will take place at the Faces of Freedom Memorial. During the ceremony, the national anthem will be played by local artist Rebecca McKinley, guest speaker Ray Johnson, who was named Veteran of the Year last fall, will fly over in an Estrella Warbirds plane and a memorial wreath will be laid. Dick Mason will conduct the ceremony and Andy Morris will provide the sound. Faces of Freedom is located at 9029 Morro Road in Atascadero. Paso Robles County Cemetery Due to COVID-imposed restrictions, Paso Robles County Cemetery has cancelled its annual Memorial Day event for the second time. From Saturday 29. May, to Memorial Day, Monday 31. In May they are decorated with flags. Paso Robles County Cemetery is located at 45 Nacimiento Lake Drive in Paso Robles. Annual fundraiser for veterans Wine for veterans during Memorial weekend. SLO County Vineyards Vino for Vets is a Memorial Day fundraiser where a portion of the wine sales go to Honor Flight. This year Honor Flight would like to show their appreciation and support to partners affected by COVID-19 and other issues. That’s why they don’t do fundraising locally, but hold a Vino for Vets raffle. Honor Flight has assembled the wine into five six-pack collections and is distributing them for $25. There are only 150 entries for a chance to win one of the six packages. Entries may be paid by check or credit card; purchase information and entry forms are available on Honor Flight’s website, honorflightccc.org/vinoforvets. Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum The Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum is open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors to the museum will see exhibits that commemorate America’s military history and the sacrifices of those who served our country. Special attention will be given to the stories of veterans of the Central Coast. Films are also shown Documentaries. The museum is partnering with the American Legion, Post 66, which will host its annual Memorial Day program from 11 a.m. to noon. The Legion is sponsoring a flyover of aircraft, historic military vehicles and there will be a bouncy castle for the kids. The Legion will offer hot dogs and hamburgers following the memorial service. The Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum is located at 801 Grand Avenue in San Luis Obispo, at the corner of Grand Avenue and Monterey Street, behind the Veterans Memorial building. Look at the tank in front of you, and join us on this special day as we honor the veterans who have given their lives for the United States.
