Memorial Day 2017 Parades and Events Around Tampa FL
We have a lot to be thankful for here in the United States. We enjoy freedoms unheard of in many countries, but, as the old saying goes, freedom isn’t free. That’s why we come together as a country each and every year on Memorial Day to remember and celebrate every member of our armed forces who gave their lives so we can continue enjoying everything that makes our country so great. With that in mind, here are some of the best Memorial Day 2017 parades and events around Tampa, FL.

Memorial Day Celebration with the Ruskin Senior Center
Memorial Day can be a somber day for many, but it can be hardest for those who fought side-by-side with those who lost their lives in combat. To help them get through the day with a smile in their heart, the Ruskin Senior Center in Ruskin, FL, is holding a special Memorial Day Celebration complete with World War II military vehicles. Seniors will be able to explore the vehicles while remembering those closest to them that gave their lives for our freedom.
