Springtacular Snowbeach

Just because Memorial Day is the unofficial gateway to summer doesn’t mean you have to kiss the winter snowfall goodbye. Saturday, May 26 is annual Springtacular at Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort. Fans of classic beach games like cornhole, volleyball, croquet, Frisbee, and more descend on the West Village to revel in these fun pastimes. The twist? They are all oversized – and played on SNOW! Sponsored by 10 Barrel Beer Company, be sure to join from 12pm to 3pm for live music with Tim McLaughlin and his Super Funky Ski Buddies, festivities, beer, a dunk tank (sadly with water, not beer), and more!

Bend Elks Club Memorial Day Tournament

For a festive and outdoor event for the whole family, why not take in some baseball games with the potential stars of tomorrow? Over the 3-day weekend a collection of talented little league teams square off in a 4-game double-header tournament at the various parks and ballfields across Bend. Pack a picnic, grab a blanket, and take in America’s pastime. The introductory rounds are held Saturday and Sunday, with the different age group finals held on Memorial Day.

Memorial Day, Remembered

Nearby Bend, OR, is home to an active collection of veterans’ groups. Every year these soldiers plant flags in Pilot Butte Cemetery and along the city’s parks and roads before gathering at Deschutes Memorial Gardens to honor the more than 2,000 interred military veterans there. The ceremony at 1pm includes music, testimonials, and a traditional color guard and 21-gun salute. At the Bend Heroes Memorial Plaza, a reading of the names of the more than 7,000 men and women who died in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is a powerful reminder of sacrifice, honor, and loss.
