Celebrate Labor Day Holiday Weekend
Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.
To most of us Labor Day weekend symbolizes the end of summer. We celebrate with festivals, food and fun times. And in that spirit here is a list of major events to celebrate our last long weekend of the summer. Click on the photo for each event to access that events website for additional details.
