Memorial Day commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. It is a holiday many of us spend doing family gatherings, backyard BBQs or enjoying a nice evening out with friends and family. However we choose to celebrate Memorial Day in Chicago Illinois, we do so by honoring those who have lost their lives for our great freedoms. Some things to do on Memorial Day 2019 Chicago include camping, fishing and golfing. Want to do something at night in Chicago for Memorial Day 2019?
