Enjoy this kick - off to summer!

Memorial Weekend BBQ and Vehicle Show

May 25, 11 am – 3 pm

FREE! Come and Enjoy!

Memorial Day is a special weekend where we remember those that have fallen while protecting our nation’s freedoms. It also serves as the unofficial kick off to summer. In 2018, the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center and other area organizations collaborated for a free community BBQ.  This year the Center is expanding on the event even more.

The event will be a combined military vehicle show and community BBQ. The vehicle show will feature vehicles from the Wisconsin National Guard, the United States Army and many private vehicles including a flying UH-1 Huey Helicopter. The free community BBQ is being sponsored by Blackwoods Catering and Bernicks. In addition, there will be yard games, a bake sale and bouncy houses. Just bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic by the harbor.

All activities will be at the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center in Superior WI.
