Champaign-Urbana Weekend Planner – Memorial Day Weekend

Families can choose from a myriad of events and activities this week in Champaign-Urbana

It is here! Memorial Day Weekend has arrived and the last day of school has happened (or may even be happening today, for some schools). Summer has come rushing onto the scene and area organizations are planning more summer fun than we think we have ever seen before – certainly more than has been happening in the last handful of years. Get signed up for those summer reading programs, mark fair and festival days on your calendar and stock up on sunscreen now. It is going to be a full summer!

Are you looking for what is open and what is closed on Memorial Day? We have that list for your reference here.
