Memorial Day 2020 may not be filled with big family picnics and parades, but we still managed to find some patriotic "events" to help commemorate the special day.

PARADE OF HEROES
Monday, May 25

Honoring those who gave their lives for our freedom, Ancestry.com is hosting a "parade" with special guests beginning at 10 a.m. Central Time.

Hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford, expect performances by Tori Kelly and more.
