Labor Day weekend marks the official end of all summer fun and activities. It’s obvious this year from our Labor Day Weekend Guide that there is more Things to Do than in previous years. It features a collection of last chance summer events like waterparks, fireworks, closing of exhibits, festivals and family fun. So if you’re not ready to say goodbye to summer, it’s OK. You have one last weekend to celebrate!
Put on your white shoes, white pants, and get out to celebrate the end of summer 2016! Here are five samplings of Things to Do this Labor Day Weekend:
