Labor Day weekend is finally here. Since its inauguration in 1894, the country has celebrated the legacy of American workers with parades, picnics, fireworks and more.
The most classic way to spend Labor Day weekend is by attending your local fireworks display. If you find yourself in Boston, the city’s annual fireworks show lights the sky starting at 8:30pm. The best places to watch are from Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park (100 Atlantic Ave.), Long Wharf (66 Long Wharf) and the Downtown Waterfront. Grab your blanket, a snack or two and get ready.
This long weekend also sadly marks the end of summer, which also means it’s also the last weekend to ride the famous Swan Boats. Grab some family and friends and hop aboard.
A great Labor Day Weekend activity for families is the Boston Lights: A Lantern Experience. The event sees the Franklin Park Zoo lit with more than 55 incredible displays of beautifully crafted lanterns spanning the zoo’s 72 acres.
Want to get out of Boston? There are plenty of incredible festivals and events across New England, including Bread and Roses Heritage Festival in Lawrence, Massachusetts, a free festival with puppet shows, live music and plenty more family activities celebrating the city’s cultural diversity. There are plenty of other fairs across New England as well, from Gloucester Schooner Festival and Amesbury’s Country Fair to Renaissance Faires in Carver and Lebanon, Connecticut.
