2019 Labor Day Weekend Events near Racine WI
History agrees that the first Labor Day in America was celebrated in 1882, with a parade in New York City to celebrate the workers that made this country the economic powerhouse it is today. 137 years later, Labor Day has turned into a staple in the United States, as a ceremonial first day of fall and a welcome day off from work and school. If you’re looking for something to do on September 2, join us at some awesome 2019 Labor Day Weekend Events near Racine WI!
