Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (on September 7 in 2009).
The holiday originated in 1882 as the Central Labor Union of New York City sought to create “a day off for the working citizens.” Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday on June 28, 1894, two months after the May Day Riots of 1894. May 4 was chosen to remember the Haymarket Affair. All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.
Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer – From Wikipedia (damn that thing comes in handy).
That’s right we are celebrating the end of the summer. I can’t think of a better way than coming up to Winter Park and having some fun to wish the warm summer goodbye (it’s also usually blazing hot in Denver around Labor Day).
Lots of activities up here that weekend:
- 09/05 High Altitude Battle of the Bands and Boards
- 09/05 High Country Stampede Rodeo
- 09/06 Labor Day Block Party & Sidewalk Sale
