It’s time travel in the most realistic sense. A short jot down Dixie Highway to Holly, Michigan will drop you right off in the 16th Century.
Complete with armored jousting, comedy, games and a little heckling, the 2016 Michigan Renaissance Festival is sure to pack a Queen Elizabeth size punch.
It’s one of Oakland County‘s most unique annual festivals and it’s back for the 37th year. Running weekends from August 20-October 2, the Michigan Renaissance Festival attracts more than 250,000 visitors from across the state, Canada and surrounding areas.
It’s not just a day for barbecues and yard games, although events like those are a nice perk of a long Labor Day weekend.
It’s a day to remember and celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers. We have all made contributions to America in some capacity, and on this day we celebrate those contributions.
Before fall is upon us, and the school year is in full swing, take time to have a little family fun this Labor Day. Find a festival, parade or campground near you using our full list of Labor Day events.
