Residents of McHenry County New Homes Celebrate Memorial Day

Today kicks off Memorial Day weekend, and we have the list of the best celebrations near your McHenry County new homes. From parades to aquatic fun, you’re sure to find the perfect event for you.

Parades: You have two parades to choose from this year. First, the Crystal Lake American Legion will host a Memorial Day parade and memorial service on Monday, May 28 at 11 a.m. It’s a great way to learn about American history and honor our fallen heroes. Second, McHenry County is also hosting a parade on Saturday, May 26 at 11 a.m. for those who may already have plans on Monday. This parade will conclude with a celebration in honor of our veterans.

Water Fun: If celebrating Memorial Day on the water sounds more like your kind of day, then you have two fun activities to choose from. Knox Park Poll is opening today at 1:15 p.m. for those you want to bask in the sun or splash around in the water. Or, you can head out to the lake on Sunday at 4 p.m. to watch the national award-winning Wonder Lake Water Ski Show Team kick off their 2012 season with a fabulous show. The show is free, and Gerstad Builders’ very own president, Roger Gerstad, will be participating.

Grill Out: Top off all the fun with a backyard barbecue with family and friends. Our McHenry, Poplar Grove, Williams Bay and Richmond homes are the perfect place to gather with family and friends for a relaxing Memorial Day party.
