San Diego’s deep military roots are on full display Memorial Day weekend with Legacy Week at the USS Midway Museum. Starting Saturday, May 27th, and running through Memorial Day on Monday, May 29th, the restored aircraft carrier is hosting several events to remember our fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
Planned Legacy Week activities include a wreath ceremony, a Freedom Concert featuring Lifehouse, an Adventure Discovery Zone, Meet the Aviators, and a blood drive.
The wreath ceremony takes place Saturday, May 27th, at 9am, featuring a fly over, special speakers, retired veterans, and tossing of wreaths over the ship. Even better, this event is free, with admission to the museum granted to those in attendance of the wreath ceremony. Also occuring on Saturday at 7:30pm is the Freedom Concert. All proceeds from this charity event go toward local military non-profit organizations.
The Adventure Discovery Zone, running all weekend is a fun, hands-on learning experience, including special exhibits, military equipment, demonstrations, and more. In addition to this unique feature, Meet the Aviators, Sunday and Monday from 10am to 4pm, gives the public an opportunity to talk to pilots who will be stationed at each aircraft on the ship and ask questions about the firsthand flight experience of that particular craft.
