Top Five Things to Do on Memorial Day In Lafayette – Bruce’s Picks

School is over and vacations are about to start; it is Memorial Day! For a lot of people that means the first trip to the beach, the smell of charcoal in the pit and most importantly a time to remember the reason for Memorial Day. Many of us will have an extra day off and are looking for some ways to pass a good time. I think we’ve got some good ideas for you to consider. There is a little something for everyone here, a lot family fun, a lot of music and a lot of things that don't cost anything.

Indy 500


Backyard BBQ and Indy 500/Coca Cola 600



The Memorial Day weekend has had a traditional connection with automobile racing in America. Did you know that this weekend marks the 100th Anniversary of the Indianapolis 500? Participants spend the entire month of May in Speedway Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis, fine tuning their racing machines to reach over 220 MPH. Meanwhile the southern equivalent of Indy is held Memorial Day Weekend in Charlotte North Carolina. The Coca Cola 600, formerly the World 600 is NASCAR’s longest race. The event will start in full daylight and end under the lights. The combination of a lot of laps and the changing track conditions make the “600” one of the toughest races to win. So what will I be doing for almost 12 straight hours of high speeds and left turns? I will be running back and forth between the grill on the patio, the ice chest next to the back door and teaching my oldest how to hand crank homemade ice cream. If you can find a better Memorial Day gathering than my house I’d love to hear about it.
