Labor Day Weekend marks the end of the summer. It is the last big hurrah before back-to-school and an eagerly awaited holiday. While people love the holiday for its perks, like having the day off from work and an extended weekend, the holiday signifies much more than that. This yearly national tribute to the hard work of the American people celebrates their strength, perseverance, and dedication to the growth and prosperity of our country. It is a time to reflect on those wonderful traits that have helped build and shape our country to be the one it is today.
It is also a time to celebrate! Labor Day Weekend is jam-packed with fun fairs, festivals, car shows, races, and boat shows to attend. Unfortunately the weather forecast this year on Long Island for the latter half of Labor Day Weekend doesn’t look quite so inviting. While Friday and Saturday look clear, on Sunday and Monday you can expect some rain and potential thunder storms.
Don’t let the impending weather situation spoil your weekend though! You can still enjoy your Labor Day Weekend to the fullest.
Celebrate Early: The forecast looks grim for the latter part of Labor Day Weekend – use that information to your advantage! Sure, you may not be able to attend that festival on Monday you were planning on going to but why not go to a festival on Friday or Saturday instead! That way you still get to enjoy the festivities and join in on the outdoor fun during Labor Day Weekend.
Check Up On Events: Some of the events taking place over Labor Day weekend are going on rain or shine. If you don’t mind the rain and still want to attend the event you picked to do over the weekend, double check that it is one of the events that will be going on despite the weather.
Bring The Party Inside: Invite friends over instead of heading out to an event. Host a movie marathon or a competitive board game tournament! As long as you’re with friends and family it doesn’t matter how you celebrate, just that you do it together. Keep an eye on the weather too. You might still be able to sneak in grilling up some tasty food on the barbecue before the rain picks up again.
