Memorial Day is right around the corner, and American Village invites you to visit for a patriotic salute to our nation’s fallen heroes and a day filled with family-friendly activities. Admission is free, so make plans to attend Alabama’s Bicentennial Year Memorial Day on Monday, May 27.
History Comes to Life at American Village
The Memorial Day event at American Village features a jam-packed schedule of events that honor fallen heroes throughout the history of our nation. The schedule kicks off at 10:30 a.m. in the Colonial Chapel, followed by “A Salute to Our Veterans” at 11 a.m. in Liberty Hall.
A wreath-laying ceremony, a drum corp, a Gold Star memorial prayer service, and much more keep the day focused on the meaning of the holiday, while educational presentations like “From Taft to Trump” and “Crime and Punishment” give a broader scope of American history.
And then there are the games. Kids of all ages will love the Colonial Games on the Green, featuring Trap Ball and Hoops played with American Village’s costumed interpreters. Other fun lawn games and activities include bean bag toss, hula hoop, giant Jenga, and sidewalk chalk art.
