Memorial Day traditionally marks the official first day of the summer season, and this year is no exception. After a difficult 2020-21 marked by COVID, Cape May is ready to invite visitors back for a Memorial Day Weekend celebration.
Mayor Zack Mullock opens the season with a welcome message in Rotary Park on Friday, May 28 at 6:30 p.m. Hear all about what is to come this year, including concerts, movies on the beach, parades, and more. Live entertainment kicks off with Subliminal Message Band performing after the mayor’s “start of summer” celebration. News is that “Captain Mey” might make an appearance (find out how you can help the city capture him).
After spending time having fun in the sun all weekend, the city pays homage to what is most important about this holiday and that is the remembrance of the military personnel who have died while serving our country. Join the City of Cape May on Monday, May 31 at noon as they open Soldiers and Sailors Park, located at Gurney Street and Columbia Avenue. Immediately following the ceremony in the park is the arrival of the Flotilla 82 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, which will present a flower boat launch on Gurney Street Beach.
All are welcome to attend. For additional information, visit www.capemaycity.com or call 609.884.9565.
