How to Celebrate Labor Day

Labor Day honors American workers on the first Monday in September. Here are some suggestions on how to make your Labor Day something to celebrate!


  • Step 1: Go to beach Gather sand toys, beach balls, and water toys, and head to the beach. Labor Day happens at the end of the summer season, so there are few chances left to enjoy the sun and sand!
  • Step 2: Go to a parade Take the kids to see the floats, marching bands, and clowns at a Labor Day parade.
  • TIP: Arrive early to get a good spot.
  • Step 3: Go camping Pack up the fishing poles, marshmallows, and tents, and go camping at your favorite campsite. Labor Day weekend is a perfect three-day holiday to get away from civilization.
  • Step 4: Enjoy the water Enjoy the water by renting jet skis or going on a boat ride.
  • Step 5: Pack a lunch Take the family to the park to play Frisbee, fly a kite, or have a picnic.
  • Step 6: Spend the day with friends Enjoy the day with friends and family by eating together at a cookout.
  • Step 7: Stay home Grab your favorite drink, a lawn chair, and a good book, if you'd rather stay at home and enjoy the peace and quiet. However you celebrate, remember that honoring workers means taking the day off!
  • FACT: Congress passed legislation making Labor Day a national holiday in 1894.
