Memorial Day Weekend 2019

Now that it’s officially May, Memorial Day Weekend 2019, the unofficial beginning of summer, is just a few short weeks away. If you’re looking to spend the weekend and extra day off hitting the beach, hanging with family or just partying, you’ve come to the right place. Check out our list of the best, most fun events and activities of the entire holiday weekend.

What to Do for Memorial Day Weekend 2019

Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park

Just like every year, the 16th Annual Bethpage Air Show will take place during Memorial Day Weekend 2019 at Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh.    

On Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., come out and honor our nation’s military by watching high-flying stunts from world-renowned military and civilian pilots. You can expect famous aircrafts like the Air Force Thunderbirds, Navy FA-18 Super Hornet and the Red Bull Aerobatic Helicopter.

However, just keep in mind that parking can be scarce and pricey during the Bethpage Air Show, so take an All Island cab to bypass the inevitable headaches!

Eisenhower Park Memorial Day Weekend Carnival

There’s no better way to celebrate MDW with the whole family than by attending the Eisenhower Park Memorial Day Weekend Carnival from Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27 in East Meadow.

This weekend-long extravaganza will feature all kinds of fun carnival rides and games, from the Ferris Wheel and Zipper to Pop-a-Shot and Water Gun Fun. There will also be a wide selection of delicious food and treats, as well as stage entertainment, all in a scenic park setting.

Admission to the carnival is free, but rides and games are going to cost you. However, the carnival will be selling a $30 wristband for unlimited rides all night long!
