For more than a hundred years, Forest Lawn has invited the community to join us on Memorial Day as we remember the brave men and women who gave their lives for our nation at one of our patriotic and inspirational celebrations.
This year is no exception. In fact, it may be our most impressive Memorial Day lineup ever.
Leading up our six celebrations on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 at our Glendale, Hollywood Hills, Cypress, Covina Hills, Long Beach and Cathedral City locations, we are proudly partnering with the Glendale Sunrise Rotary to present the Field of Honor celebration.
The Field of Honor will take place beginning Saturday, May 18 through Monday, May 27 in Glendale. The park’s entrance will be filled with 1,000 colorful flags. There will also be a dedicated stage where each day at noon, speakers portraying historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Civil War soldiers will share stories about their service to our nation. Food and refreshments will also be part of this very special week-long event.
Then on Memorial Day, we will host celebrations at all six Memorial Parks. Each one will feature inspirational music and speakers, ice cream, refreshments, giveaways and historical exhibits.
The celebrations at Hollywood Hills, Covina Hills, Cypress and Long Beach all begin at10 am. The start time in Cathedral City is 10:30 am, while Glendale begins at 1 pm. In partnership with the group Marching Thru History Exposition, we will have tanks, jeeps and other vehicles on display that kids can climb on and experience, along with memorabilia from World War I and II, at Hollywood Hills and Cypress. In Glendale, Civil War artifacts will be on display
