Family events to explore this Labor Day Weekend.

There's plenty to do as a family this Labor Day. For kids, the time off means a long weekend full of exciting activities, events and—of course—probably a little lounging with some of our favorite kids' movies on Netflix. If you're headed on an adventure for the break, you'll want to explore our favorite staycation ideas, all-inclusive family resorts and our favorite Labor Day getaways (below). In terms of outdoor activities for kids, you'll also want to get in on the best swimming pools for kids and beaches near NYC before it's too late. When you've worked up an appetite from all of that fun (we suspect you'll be dropping by some local kids' playgrounds), you might consider whipping up one of our favorite family dinner ideas or noshing on an ice cream sundae.

When is Labor Day?

This year, Labor Day falls on Monday September 4, 2017.

What is Labor Day?

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.
