Representing the last weekend in May and the unofficial start to Summer (which doesn't OFFICIALLY begin until the summer solstice on June 21), Memorial Day Weekend at Lanier Islands is a popular tradition for countless Atlanta families. This year will prove no different thanks to the allure of a half-mile stretch of white sandy beach and more than a dozen rides, slides and attractions inside the lakeside resort's boardwalk, waterpark and entertainment district LanierWorld, paired with a jam-packed calendar of events in celebration of Memorial Day Weekend 2017. Illuminating the night sky three nights in a row that holiday weekend fireworks over Lake Lanier.

"There's something truly magical about fireworks over the lake," said Bucky Perry, Director of Operations for Lanier Islands. "I can think of no better way to kick off the summer season than with a day spent lying on the beach, running up the stairs and speeding down waterslides, dining on fresh grilled burgers or slices of pizza, listening to a live open-air concert, and then grabbing a seat in the sand to gaze up at a spectacular fireworks display. That's how lasting memories are made. I think I speak for everyone here at the Islands when I say we truly love being a part of happy memories for so many couples and families throughout Atlanta and beyond. We invite them to come celebrate Memorial Day Weekend at Your Islands.'"
