It’s time to celebrate all of your hard work!
Cheyenne has plenty to offer for this weekend’s Labor Day celebration! Labor Day is a public holiday held in honor of working people! It is celebrated in the US and Canada on the first Monday in September. Often this holiday is called the “workingman’s holiday.” This is dedicated to you with respect and appreciation for the work you do in or outside of the home, big company, small company, or government. If you work somewhere at something, whether as a cowboy moving cattle or working in the oil fields, pat yourself on the back and relax, this weekend is for you!
Labor Day was first held in New York City on September 5, 1882. It was started by the Central Labor Union in New York City. It didn’t take long to catch on, state after state started celebrating along with New York City. On June 28, 1894, the U.S. congress voted it a national holiday.
Many of us consider Labor Day as the official end of summer; with summer vacations over, school back in session and fall sports in full swing it’s hard to view it any other way. We each like to celebrate in our own way; the last boating trip and/or camping trip, working in your yard, hiking or biking the nearby mountains and trails, with family, friends or neighborhood BBQs, resting and reading or just generally catching up on life. Whatever you choose to do this year, enjoy!
