Before your family says farewell to summer, make plans for a fabulous Labor Day weekend 2014. Spend time at the best beaches and swimming pools for NYC families with the kids, squeeze in some weekend getaways and attend many other family events (lots of them free!) in New York.
When is Labor Day?
This year, Labor Day falls on September 1, 2014. Labor Day is an annual workers' holiday on the first Monday in September. The first Labor Day was organized by the Central Labor Union of New York in 1882. Each year New York City also celebrates West Indian-American Day on Labor Day, with the West Indian Day Carnival.
