Posted by CastleAdmin on 04/27/15

It’s never too early to start planning for Memorial Day weekend! Known as the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day means celebrating a three-day weekend with the ones you love near your Castle apartment in Port Chester. The kids are out of school, city offices are closed, and there is fun to be had! Now that we’re about a month out from this holiday, we’ve rounded up a list of ideas for celebrating. Keep reading and get inspired to plan your Memorial Day weekend now!


Host a Barbecue

Barbecue at Home

You don’t have to travel far from your luxury apartment at Castle to host a barbecue. In fact, you don’t have to leave home at all if you don’t want to! Castle’s rooftop terrace offers residents grills and lounge spaces. Simply grab some hamburgers and hot dogs from your fridge, head up to the roof, and grill away!


Barbecue at a Park

If you are up for venturing out of your home and into your Port Chester neighborhood, consider hosting a barbecue and picnic at one of Port Chester’s community parks. Both Lyon Park and Columbus Park feature pavilions with picnic grills, perfect for getting a big group of people together! All village of Port Chester parks are open from dawn to dusk, so you’ll have plenty of time to grill, picnic, relax, and more!


Watch the Parade

Each year, Port Chester residents are treated to a fun Memorial Day parade. From firefighters, to students, to veterans, all kinds of community members come out to honor those who lost their lives protecting American freedoms. While the details have not yet been finalized for this year’s parade, you can check for updates on Port Chester Patch’s Facebook or Twitter pages.


Shop for Deals

Memorial Day weekend is known for having great summer sales. From clothes to cars, there are great steals you can take advantage of. While there are great stores and shops right near your Castle home, you can also venture out a bit further since our luxury Port Chester apartment community is conveniently located near the Metro-North rail line and 1-95S. A three-day weekend provides the perfect opportunity to go shopping in Manhattan and NYC.

Your Castle home has a lot to offer when it comes to taking advantage of fun holidays and a convenient location. We hope these ideas have sparked your desire to start planning your Memorial Day weekend. Are you doing something fun that wasn’t included on our list? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter!
