WildSide Online Inc.'s 25th Annual Memorial Day Classic at Weston was created by Split Second Timing Inc. as a free community run in 1989, celebrating the “new” Town of Weston and was an event for all residents of the this new community to take part in and get to know each other. Twenty-Five years later, the Memorial Day Classic at Weston has transformed into a small community gathering to one of the largest road racing events in South Florida. The run has become a tradition for Weston based families and there are even families who have been participating all 25 years who are not all together in Weston anymore! Memorial Day is traditionally known as a day to honor and memorialize our fallen soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us to stand free in the United States of America. It is also a day for families to be together and cherish the times that they are together. The Memorial Day Classic at Weston embraces bringing the community together and encourages each and every resident to come out and meet their fellow residents.
This Memorial Day come out and bring your family to the City of Weston's OLDEST community event.
