-Tampa Bay’s Memorial Day Events-
For 2023, Tampa Bay’s Memorial Day events range from community festivals to special ceremonies to honor our fallen soldiers. Our Florida real estate team believes in honoring U.S. veterans and active military service members every day, but Memorial Day brings even greater significance and opportunities to appreciate our American freedoms.
Importantly, wherever you choose to spend the weekend, we hope you will take time to remember the sacrifices of our military. Below you’ll find a few events being planned around Tampa Bay.

For many years, one of our favorite ways to show support has been through Operation Helping Hand, a nonprofit helping families of wounded and injured active-duty military.
