How do you plan to spend Memorial Day weekend?

The usual weekend getaway, ceremonies honoring veterans, and grilling with family and friends will need a pandemic-style update this year.

Memorial Day weekend is normally a time for getaway trips, barbecues, ceremonies and parades, and shopping — but life is different now. Even though Massachusetts recently announced its phased reopening and issued a new safer at home advisory, gatherings of 10 or more people are still not allowed. 

How do you plan to spend Memorial Day weekend this year? What are the judgment calls you’re making to feel safe while also finding a way to unwind? Will you honor fallen veterans in a new way or stream a virtual substitute for the canceled Boston Calling festival? Maybe you will be enjoying the warm weather at the beach on Monday? Tell us how you’ll be spending this Memorial Day weekend below, or by emailing community@boston.com, and we may feature your response in an upcoming Boston.com article.
