Labor Day is on September 3rd, and for many that means a day off to enjoy time with family. But do you know why Labor Day even exists? Annually celebrated on the first Monday in September, it was created by the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American worker. We celebrate the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. There are a lot of fun events going on in and around Huntsville all of Labor Day weekend:
Huntsville Botanical Gardens Events – You don’t have to wait until Monday to celebrate at The Huntsville Botanical Garden! It will be open every day of Labor Day weekend.
