Long Island's Labor Day Weekend Fun Guide - Events, Things to Do, & More!
Celebrate the End of Summer with Great Entertainment & Fun
Labor Day is a federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September in celebration of the economic and social contributions of America’s hard workers which made and continues to make the country prosperous. In June 1984, an act passed by Congress officially made the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday. The first proposal of the holiday suggested that it be observed with a street parade, followed by a festival filled with recreational activities for workers and their families. This became the pattern for years to follow and these traditions are still honored in celebrations today. For many, Labor Day has also become to symbolize the end of the summer, and it serves as a last hurrah before kids head back to school. Here's the scoop on how to enjoy yourself with some of the fun and special events happening near you for this year with’s Labor Day Guide!
