Memorial Weekend Celebration

From Friday, May 23, 2014 to Sunday, May 25, 2014 May 23, 2014 May 25, 2014 Lanier Islands

It's time for the summer vacation season to begin, and we're excited to kick it off with a bang! Our Memorial Weekend Celebration is the thing to look forward to as school draws to an end and the water slides open for fun. Come enjoy the sunshine on your face, the sand beneath your toes, and the cool breeze coming off the Lake! There will even be live music everyday starting Friday, May 23 through Monday, May 26! We've also got an amazing fireworks show lined up for Sunday night, weather permitting! You don't want to miss out on this exciting event!

In addition to over a dozen waterslides and attractions, carnival rides like the towering lakeside Ferris Wheel, a slew of waterfront dining establishments, pick-up games of beach volleyball, family-friendly matches of miniature golf, and adventurous pursuits like kayaking, ziplining, and paddleboarding, the 4-day Memorial Day Weekend Celebration is going to be the perfect start to the perfect summer!

Also, as a salute to both our active and veteran military personnel, we are giving those with military ID free admission to LanierWorld when accompanied by a paying guest!
