Hickory Farms has long been a supporter of our country’s military forces, and we want to join our fellow Americans in honoring our fallen heroes on Memorial Day. Some of the best ways to celebrate this holiday and kick off the summer season include:
Attending a patriotic parade.
Kids always love the excitement of seeing a marching band and soldiers in a parade, but take the time to explain their significance so they can understand the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform.
Have a family picnic.
After the parade has passed, take your family on a picnic. Our signature Beef Summer Sausage and a variety of cheeses from our Savory Cheese Collection make delicious appetizers atop our Olive Oil & Rosemary Crackers. You can keep the kids busy while dad is firing up the grill by bringing a baseball and glove. This is the perfect opportunity to give your throwing arm (and your little sluggers!) a workout.
Catch a local fireworks display.
Many cities stage patriotic displays after the sun goes down on Memorial Day to honor the lives lost in service to our country. Make sure you arrive early to spread your blanket or set up lawn chairs. Don’t forget the bug spray! Kids will love an opportunity to light up some sparklers of their own with mom and dad supervising.
Hang our colors proudly from your front door.
Did you know that it’s a Memorial Day tradition to fly the American flag from dawn to noon at half-staff? During the remainder of the day, it’s flown at full height.
A good way to honor your favorite active duty and retired service members is to send them a selection of Hickory Farms Military Gifts, which we’re proud to ship free to any AFO/FPO address. Let them know you appreciate their commitment and bravery by surprising them this Memorial Day with some tasty treats.
