The city will honor those who fell in service to their nation on Memorial Day.
You can honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom by attending a Memorial Day Remembrance Service at Oak Hill Memorial Park, 2640 Glenridge Road, on Monday, May 29, at 10 a.m. The remembrance is sponsored by the Escondido Allied Veterans Council.
Since 1868 the United States has designated a day to remember the brave people who have died while serving in our country’s armed forces. Originally known as “Decoration Day”, Memorial Day is a time to reflect and remember the brave soldiers who have passed away defending our country.
In addition to this solemn observance of Memorial Day, you may also want to consider another event that has become a Memorial Day Weekend tradition in Escondido: the American Heritage Car Show sponsored by the Escondido History Center. This year’s free event will be held on Saturday, May 27, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in Grape Day Park in downtown Escondido.
The American Heritage Car Show will feature hundreds of domestic and import pre-’74 vintage, classic, muscle and hot rod cars. The event will include a DJ, a pancake breakfast, vendors, refreshments, and a raffle.
