Memorial Day is the national holiday in which we look back at the sacrifices made by those in America’s armed forces and join together in celebration of their lives and the freedom they have fought for.
Your Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce recognizes that this holiday also entails a three-day weekend, which provides us all with some much needed time to spend with our friends, family, and neighbors.
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend this year with a variety of fun activities and plenty of delicious South Texas food brought to you by some of our Mission Chamber members.
