Celebrating Memorial Day in Hemet, CA

The West Coast Thunder will host their annual Memorial Day Bike Run/Parade on Sunnymead Boulevard on Monday, May 26. The bikers who come to Southern California for this event take their celebrations seriously; some even arrive as early as 5:30 in the morning to begin preparations.

Whether you’re bringing the kids to a parade or braving your first potluck in a new neighborhood, it’s important to be responsible on Memorial Day. Wear plenty of sunscreen for outdoor parades, pool parties and barbecues, and don’t forget to reapply every two hours. Mist yourself in bug spray if you’re attending a nighttime ceremony with fireworks or boating after sunset, and most importantly, assign a designated driver if you plan to drink during the festivities.

Because you don’t know how well your fellow Hemet drivers are following the rules, you should try to make it home before nightfall if at all possible.
