WHAT IS LABOR DAY? Labor Day is a very important American holiday. Yes, we spend it “closing out” the summer, spending time with family and friends, BBQing, swimming, and having fun. But it’s about more than that. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. Now, Labor Day is always celebrated on the first Monday of September; it is a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
HOW CAN YOU CELEBRATE? Family picnics, community parades, and festive get-togethers are all great ways to celebrate this special holiday.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE IT AN AWESOME HOLIDAY? Make your Labor Day Weekend a CAMPING ADVENTURE! Grab your family and friends and spend the holiday at our resort.
DID YOU KNOW? Here’s a fun fact: Americans worked A LOT in the 19th century -- 12-hour days every day of the week! Thank goodness for the Adamson Act, which was passed in September of 1916, which established a more reasonable eight-hour work day.
CAN YOU WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY? We say, why not??
WHAT CAN YOU COOK? Well, anything, really! But we found some recipes that we felt like we just had to share!
- These Dijon Chicken Wings are sure to pack a big punch!
- These Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packets can be cooked almost anywhere -- BBQ, open fire, oven...so easy to make and so yummy to eat!
- Best is in the title so these must really be the Best Campfire Baked Beans; perfect for any occasion!
- Make a festive cocktail -- or 10! You deserve it!
We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend with family & friends -- at our resort! Happy Camping!
