May 22, 2018 – The National Salute to America’s Heroes presented by Hyundai returns to Miami Beach and is one of the country’s largest Memorial Day weekend celebrations. Now in its second year, the two-day event on May 26 – 27 between 11th and 14th Streets on the beach, is designed to pay tribute to, honor and encourage military and first responder heroes. The National Salute to America’s Heroes presented by Hyundai is a free event anchored by the Hyundai Air & Sea Show and The Music Explosion Concert presented by Hyundai on the Altec Lansing Stage.
The Display Village/Action Zone centered at Lummus Park will span more than four city blocks on Ocean Drive, and will feature the Hyundai Hangar, a patriotically inspired consumer lounge honoring the U.S. Military and showcasing the U.S.-built Elantra, Sonata and Santa Fe models. The Hyundai Hangar, located on 13th street, will feature a collaborative art mural, “Who is your hero?” art wall, to honor all veterans and first responders that will offer guests the opportunity to post memorials of family and friends who have served. Customized patriotic-themed live screen printing t-shirts and charging stations will also be available to guests visiting the Hyundai Hangar. Hyundai will also have several other activations and vehicle displays on 12th and 14th streets, including its all-new Kona and Veloster N. These onsite activations are being managed by Advantage.
As part of its broader commitment to the U.S. Military, Hyundai is doubling the military incentive on all of its vehicles for U.S. service men and women. Any active or retired military personnel and their spouse can receive $1,000 toward the purchase of a new Hyundai vehicle through May 31, 2018.
