Summer Activities for The Batch Yard

Happy June! Summer is officially here The Batch Yard residents! Well officially on the 21st, but that is right around the corner. Summer starts every year on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year- the day with the most sunlight. Now that warmer weather and longer days are here to stay, there needs to be plenty of activities to keep everyone busy and having fun. 

Now that the sun is constantly shining, everyone has a little extra pep in their step. We all want some extra special things to do this season. Throw on a cute outfit, get out in the sun, and have some fun in Everett, MA. 

A few lively outdoor activities include having a picnic, going to a parade, making tye-dye clothes, watching a game, or taking a hike. While spending time outside this season, bring out your inner kid and have a ball! Run through sprinklers, go down a slip ‘n’ slide, ride ferris wheels and roller coasters, or have a water balloon fight. 

Maybe you prefer some relaxation. Of course, going to the beach and sunbathing, reading, or listening to music is always a good idea. If you can’t get to a beach then star-gazing, spa days, wine tasting, or even going tech-free can all be incredibly relaxing!

Memorial Day 2023

This year, Memorial Day is honored on May 29, 2023. The Batch Yard is proud to celebrate Memorial Day as a federal United States holiday that honors America’s military members who have lost their lives in service to our country. Always observed on the last Monday of the month of May. 

For a lot of Americans, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. Many people attend parades, go to the beach, or have barbeques with family and friends- which can be hosted right here at The Batch Yard. But at its core, Memorial Day is a yearly remembrance for those who have sacrificed their lives in the military service. 

Each year, throughout a television broadcast, a Memorial Day Parade is broadcasted as a tribute to our Nation’s fallen heroes. Presented by Boeing returns live to Constitution Avenue this Memorial Day, May 29, at 2:00 PM. Whether you come to watch live, in-person, or on television from around the country, or the world, the story of American sacrifice is shared from Washington DC to Everett, MA to beyond. 

Then, stay tuned for the very special Independence Day television companion- Our Sacred Honor: An American Salute. Airing on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and CW stations nationwide, the National Memorial Day Parade and Our Sacred Honor commemorate the shared values of service and sacrifice that have brought this nation together throughout history.
