Labor Day is very traditional day that celebrates the American labor movement and contributes to workers that made the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. A public holiday that is celebrated on the first Monday in September! That means there will be plenty of celebrations for the long Labor Day weekend in South Florida! Some people think that is summer’s last gulp, but summer weather in South Florida doesn’t really change until the season is well into October. So, have fun with plenty of things to do for the Labor Day weekend!
-Start off the weekend on Friday night with a sitter as South Florida Science Center and Aquarium will watch the kids for you from 6:00-10:00 p.m., the kid’s from ages 4 to 12 are invited to learn all about reptiles and explore the center with the current exhibits: “Eww! What’s Eating You?" (Cost is $30 per child, and each additional child is $15. For information, call 561-832-2026. The museum is at 4801 Dreher Trail North in West Palm Beach.)
-In Palm Beach County, it would be a great weekend to check out Flavor Palm Beach, as the entire month is rolling out huge dining deals! Plus, a promotion of the proceeds will benefit the Palm Beach Food Bank, with meals that are pre-paid. Forty six restaurants will be participating whether it is lunch or dinner.
-Hang out with the KVJ Show crew, Kevin and Virginia, as they will be leading the Best Boat Bar Tour of north county waterfront bars on Sunday. The tour will start at Tommy Bahamas in Harbourside Place in Jupiter, Florida and head to Guanabana’s around 2:00 p.m. and then wraps up at Waterway Café in Palm Beach Gardens around 4:00 p.m.
-The forecast for this Labor Day weekend calls for some pretty nice weather and possible showers. That basically means a lot of South Floridians will be jumping on their boats for some fun on the waters!
*Remember: Boaters are urged to monitor weather broadcasts and marine forecasts on a regular throughout the days. Also, all boaters are urged to have a working VHF-FM marine radio on board as well as all safety equipment required. Since Labor Day is one of the most popular boating times, high demand for marinas and parking with long lines and waits.
“Over the long holiday weekend the Coast Guard and various other law enforcement agencies will be out on the water conducting safety checks and watching for boaters who are intoxicated. The Coast Guard said before hitting the water, boaters should file a float plan. When an emergency happens, there are so many things to remember. And without a float plan, boaters are counting on someone else — a friend, spouse, neighbor or friend — to remember the detailed information that rescue crews will need to find the boat.”
Be Safe and have a fantastic day off of labor!!!
