Labor Day Weekend Fun Guide




Hi Friends & Neighbors –

I’ve got mixed feelings.  On one hand – Woo hoo! It’s Labor Day Weekend!  On the other hand, *sad face* for what is considered the unofficial end of Summer.   Let’s not dwell on the negative and focus on the 3-DAY WEEKEND!  How are you celebrating?  Headed to the lake, to the mountains or sticking around locally?  If you’re commemorating this national holiday somewhere in the Inland Empire then we have a great list of local Labor Day weekend events for you!

Check it out and make the most of your 3-day weekend!  If we’ve left out an event you think should be included then please leave us a blog comment below or give us a shout on Facebook and Twitter.

Till next time…have a fun & safe Labor Day weekend!
