Labor Day is not just a fun day to enjoy relaxing activities with your family and friends and it is not the last big barbecue day of the summer, more importantly it is a time to recognize the contributors America’s working men and women, as well as the achievements of the organized labor movement. My Mother and Father told use that back in the day where they lived, the community usually host a big weekend celebration at the park that actually starts on Thursday with activities for the entire family. This includes a live DJ and a dance and talent contest for the youth, a spectacular gospel fest with special guests on Sunday afternoon, and a huge parade with marching bands and colorful floats on Monday. They would really go all out for their Labor Day weekend. Today I spend Labor Day barbecuing in the backyard where there’s lots of good food, fun, family and friends and we celebrations morning ‘til night. . This holiday is the biggest summer event of the year and it seems to get bigger and better each year.
