Though Sept. 22 is the first day of fall, Labor Day usually marks the end of summer. It’s the last long weekend for backyard barbecues, beach getaways and other summer activities before the cooler weather comes in.
There are a few fun festivities happening around town this Labor Day weekend, and so I thought I’d be a doll and clue you in. If you don’t have anything planned yet, check out these Labor Day events this weekend.
