Memorial Day Tribute Honors Soldiers on Big Screen

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Oct 4, 2010 Under Event Productions

For most of us, Memorial Day marks the beginning of a season of summer fun. But don’t let the real meaning of the holiday get lost amidst the barbecues and beach sand. Memorial Day – originally called “Decoration Day” – unofficially began in 1865 as a way to honor fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. While we should honor our veterans at every opportunity, we sometimes fail to remember those who did not make it home.

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Many people observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. local time. Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon local time

During a Memorial Day Tribute held in North Georgia, a two-story tall inflatable movie screen was used to display old photos of local soldiers who fought in World War II. The hometown Mayor read names of local heroes as each soldiers photo was presented on the large screen with a military band playing patriot music in the background. Family members in attendance snapped photos of their loved ones as they appeared on the big screen.

Make your event really special by incorporating the use of inflatable movie screens. Southern Outdoor Cinema supplies large inflatable movie screens for larger-than-life screening of videos and presentations.
