Kirkside Park, Roxbury

Well, team, this is it. The last official weekend of the summer. Do you feel a bit melancholy? Or maybe just wistful and bittersweet? Then by all means, suck the marrow from the summer for the last time over the Labor Day weekend with some fun stuff to do in the Catskills. And then start looking forward to the fall and all of the colors.

Labor Day Blast, Liberty, Sullivan Co. –

The village of Liberty knows how to do a Main Street celebration brimming with Americana. Labor Day is no different, so spending Saturday morning/afternoon at the Liberty Labor Day Blast on (yep, you guessed it) Main Street from 10:30am-4pm Saturday, August 30th. There will be a car and truck show, music, food, face painting, all kinds of vendors, a parade, and plenty of fun for the whole fam. (GMAP).

Roxbury Fireworks and Concert, Delaware Co.

Sounds like a nice way to end the summer. Fireworks and free concert at Kirkside Park in the town of Roxbury, Delaware County. All the restaurants will stay open through the celebration, as will the local wine store. Kirkside Park is lovely. Don’t miss out. It all kicks off at 4pm on Sunday, August 31st and culminates in a fireworks display at 8:30pm. There are still a few rooms available at the Roxbury Motel, if you want to crash overnight. (GMAP).

Woodstock-New Paltz Arts and Crafts Fair, Ulster Co.

Did you miss your chance to catch the Woodstock-New Paltz Craft Fair at the Ulster County Fairgrounds back in May? If not, now’s your chance to get in before it goes away until next summer. Once there, you’ll find all kinds of clothing, jewelry, artwork, specialty items, and everything in between. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and kids 12 and under get in free. (GMAP).

Let’s hear you’re Labor Day suggestions. Where will you be spending the weekend?
