There is so much to do in the city metro surrounding. So, rather you are firing up the grill, heading downtown, window watching in Clayton or walking the dog in Forest Park.
I have the top 10 things to do in St Louis for Labor Day. But first a little history about Labor Day.
Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. The three-day weekend it falls on is called Labor Day Weekend.
Top 10 St Louis things to do:
I always liked the Greek Fest, and I haven’t been in years since the pandemic. It looks like a good day to drop on by.
It’s easy to “go Greek” over Labor Day weekend at the St. Nicholas Greek Festival in the Central West End. Food is one of the big draws at the St. Nicholas Greek Festival.
