Memorial Day honors those who died while serving in the U.S. military. It does not look like there are any memorials/special events at the Decatur Cemetery or Oakland Cemetery, but Oakland is holding tours as usual on Saturday and Sunday.
For those who equate this holiday with the start of the summer break, here's some potential outings for the coming 3-day weekend:
Stone Mountain Park: who can resist the "Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision with a special, extended fireworks finale"? All three nights throughtout Memorial Day weekend?
Atlanta Jazz Festival: ongoing, but see their Memorial Day Weekend line-up at Piedmont Park
Georgia Renaissance Festival:
Decatur Art Festival -- Artists Market
And... it's pool time (pdf file): per this document, the Medlock pool is open

Sundays 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Hours apply through Sept. 3, 2012
