Labor Day is a U.S. holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. Created by the labor movement in the late 19th century, it constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of this country. It became a federal holiday in 1894.
Labor Day also officially marks the end of summer. Here are a few ideas for fun around Nashville to help celebrate this three-day weekend:
