"How to make sunset last all day" Memphis Things to Do Tip by etfromnc

Memphis Things to Do: 306 reviews and 598 photos


The official finale to Memphis in May is the Sunset Symphony but it is an all day event. From mid-morning until after sunset there is entertainment along the banks of the Mississippi. Pack a picnic lunch (or take advantage of the vendors available to you) and bring lawn chairs or blankets and make a day of it. There is a symphony concert later in the day and the grand finale of Memphis in May following the symphony is a beautiful fireworks display.

Sunset Symphony is usually Memorial Day weekend and in 2007 will be on Saturday, May 26.
