The big Labor Day Weekend is here. The first Monday in September is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate the contributions of American Labor to our economy over many decades. Respect for workers’ unions and their plight lead to a better quality of life for many Americans. In 1894, Congress unanimously voted to approve legislation to make Labor Day a national holiday and President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. 123 years later, we continue the tradition with family gatherings, parades, picnics, barbecues and more, while celebrating the unofficial end-of-summer-season weekend.
Make the most of your big weekend by checking out some of the following Great Gables Events.
