Happy Memorial Day Weekend

May 22, 2008 at 7:16 am 4 comments

I’m taking a much-needed hiatus from blogging, work, and all other deadlined activities to throw myself into a long weekend of family- and friend-visiting.

I hope everyone enjoys his/her long weekend!

While there’s plenty do do this weekend in Queens, including attending the parade below, it’s always great to leave New York on long weekends like this, even if just for a day trip (Hamptons so not necessary) via Metro North. A chance of scenery can often go a long way toward helping you appreciate where you live.

Forest Hills Memorial Day Parade

Parade starts at 11 a.m., May 25, 2008, at Ascan and Metropolitan Aves, along Metropolitan to Trotting Course Lane, ending 2 p.m. at Remsen Park.

  • Remsen Park is a small cemetery, the final resting spot of Colonal Jeromus Remsen who led Kings and Queens County militia in the Battle of Long Island against the British.

Entry filed under: Forest Hills.

    Not quite. This parade steps off at NOON (sharp) in front of Continental Post 1424 of the American Legion, Metropolitan Ave. @ Ascan. It is a lovely parade — a bit of small town Americana right in our backyard, often with the Mayor in the procession.

    Anne, how do you know this? Everything I read says 11.

    11am may be the time marchers have to met and at the beginning of any parade there will be a prayer and thank you’s to the community and donors.
