Memorial Day Weekend

From Friday, May 26, 2017 to Monday, May 29, 2017 May 26, 2017 May 29, 2017 Lanier Islands

This Memorial Day is our summer kickoff! and we have a special celebration for you!

Dine right on the beach or catch a pick-up game of volleyball at Sunset Cove! If you love live music, this weekend is the perfect time to enjoy a combination of bands and DJs rotating at any of our outdoor stages. There will be food and drink specials all weekend long, with 3 nights of fireworks & special broadcasts on the Spectacular Screen! This is the long weekend to enjoy family, friends and FIREWORKS!!

Do you want to save this holiday weekend? Purchase a season pass online or at the gate and use it each day of the holiday weekend. The remarkable value is that the season pass is paid for after only three visits to the Islands - and you get to use it for the entire season!  

While we’re having a good time, let’s not forget Memorial Day’s meaning. A special presentation honoring all American military who paid the ultimate price will feature on the Spectacular Screen.

As a reminder, all military and first-responders have free entry to Lanier Islands.

This is a Memorial Day Weekend you cannot afford to miss!
