8News Daily Poll: What are you looking forward to the most on Memorial Day?

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —  One of the most anticipated holiday weekends has arrived, Memorial Day weekend.

For some, it means you get an extra day or two out of the office to enjoy time with friends and family.

Some people take a trip to the beach, to take a dip in the water or maybe just get a tan.

Cookouts are also one of the best parts about this holiday weekend.  Even if you do not feel like cooking on the grill, someone will probably invite you over to munch on some hamburgers or hotdogs. Even vegetables can taste better when they are grilled.

Some families head to a local park for firework displays.

For many people, this holiday weekend means remembering all the people who have fought and are currently fighting to keep America safe.

So whether it’s eating your weight in food, playing ball on the beach or finding a way to honor our troops make sure you stay safe and have a great holiday.
