Memorial Day Weekends Fireworks


Memorial Day is reserved for remembering, honoring and appreciating all the heroes who offer up their lives so all Americans can live in a country founded on freedom. While many a person will take to the river, raise a glass or fire up the barbecue grill to celebrate, please also take the time to give thanks and show respect for those who gave all and continue to give all to make that happen. Maybe attending one of two fireworks displays in Laughlin during the long weekend, could be the place to demonstrate that appreciation.
