What to do on Labor Day
The typical list of activities surrounding holidays such as Labor Day usually include BBQs, picnics and simple gatherings to enjoy the sun and a relaxing day off. Labor Day is one of the only holidays that fall on the same weekday every year, the first Monday of every September. This September 7th, get creative with a themed event, or plan a mini vacation to escape the busy city and daily routines.
Instead of holding a casual open BBQ gathering, put together a themed event with invitations, which will create an event for everyone to look forward to. By having guests rsvp to your event, they will be more likely to commit to the time and date, and it also provides you with a good idea of how many people to provide food and drinks for. Tropical and Island themes are an easy and cost effective way to instantly dress up your space and set the mood for your event. Items such as Tiki Bars, Bamboo Fencing, Tiki Statues and Thatch, instantly transform your backyard into an island paradise without weeks of preparation and installation.
For entertainment, classic games such as the limbo or having a group Luow to get everyone into the festivities.
This year, take advantage of the three day weekend and plan a mini vacation to get out of the city. Camping, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking or even white water rafting are all exciting ways to bring everyone closer to nature and just for a few days away from daily routines, television, the internet and more. Be sure to plan your time to avoid travelers that are coming and leaving from the city.
Want to celebrate Labor Day but don’t feel like planning, cooking or doing too much? Take the family to a theme park or to a local commercial establishment that is displaying fireworks at night. Nothing adds life and color into a holiday like fireworks. Check your local listings for locations and time.
Whatever your plan is this coming Labor Day, make sure you take the time to enjoy the day and relax. All too often we get caught up in life and forget to stop, enjoy and create memorable moments.
