Memorial Day: concerts, air shows, and hot rods (5/24/19)

Check out what sort of Memorial Day-focused events are happening around town this weekend!

Memorial Day weekend is here, and that means most of you have an extra day to play around with! As always, it's time to look forward. Here's what's happening over the next couple days in your Central Alabama Weekend Update!

Jubilee Pops Concert

The Montgomery Symphony Orchestra will take the steps at the State Archives and History Building on Friday from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Entry is free, and they’ll be playing music that’s relative to Alabama and Montgomery. This one’s always a popular event around town, and what better way to kick off Memorial Day weekend?

Moton Memorial Fly-in

On Saturday, you’ll find that aircraft from around the country have made the pilgrimage to historic Moton Field to honor the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. There’ll be youth airplane rides, vendors, exhibitors and more – this one’s a truly fantastic way to celebrate Memorial Day with the family. Think they’d let me take one of those youth airplane rides?

Hot Rods in the Park

Hot Rods in the Park is taking over Village Green in Millbrook from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. All vehicles are welcome to participate and there’ll be free food and drinks, but that comes with a caveat: the event asks that you bring a canned good to help support the Millbrook Welcome Center. You get to help people and have fun at the same time!
