Labor Day Fun for All

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.
