The day of remembrance for those who have died in service to the United States. Memorial Day is a time to remember all members of the armed forces, living and dead, who lost their lives while serving our country.
Memorial Day is observed on May 30th each year. It was originally called Decoration Day and was created after the American Civil War to honor Union soldiers who had died in battle or from wounds received during that war. The date was selected because it marked the anniversary of General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Court House in 1865 which ended the Civil War between North and South America. Memorial Day became an official federal holiday by presidential proclamation on May 10, 1868, and has been celebrated every year.
Mother Nature has decided against Elitch Gardens hosting a fireworks show to observe Memorial Day weekend. The water and entertainment park announced it will cancel Sunday night’s fireworks show because of dreary, wet weather that could cause accidents for drivers on the road as they take their children home from work or school celebrations; this is why they want everyone to be safe instead.
The ordinarily bright and fun fireworks show at Elitch Gardens was canceled due to Mother Nature’s callous disregard for the holiday. The water and entertainment park announced it will cancel Sunday night’s fireworks because of dreary, potentially wet weather that may dampen its festivities.
Rain, rain, go away…. 😥Due to rain and below average temps the Water Park is closed today – Sunday, May 30th. The fireworks show tonight has also been canceled.

The Park opened earlier this month and it’s been a hit with the community! They are now able to accommodate 43% of their capacity which means that more people can enjoy themselves. As for safety, reservations aren’t required but they have implemented health measures such as emergency staff onsite at all times in case something happens.
The park is going to be a clean paradise for all ages. Guests are required to sanitize their hands before riding, and they will need an issue-free face covering as well in order to enter the renovated area of the amusement park.
The park is encouraging online ticket purchases and contactless payments.
