Labor Day was officially established by President Grover Cleveland in 1894, however the first Labor Day was celebrated in 1882 in New York City. 10,000 workers marched from City Hall down to Elm Park and met their families for a picnic, concert, and speeches.
Labor Day started as part of the labor movement to recognize the men and women of the United States workforce, who at the time were working 12 hours a day, seven days a week!
On this Labor Day, we hope you take the time to appreciate and honor the people that make our city, state and nation run as smoothly as possible. The United States was built on the innovation, achievements, and contributions of the American worker.
Since many workers receive a well-deserved Monday off, the Labor Day holiday is traditionally considered to be the last big weekend of the summer. It's prime time for one last trip to the lake or river, one last backyard barbeque, or the final campout of the season. If you plan to travel over the holiday weekend, please travel safely.
Wear your seatbelt
Watch your speed
Don't drink and drive (or boat)
Wear a life jacket if you're on the water
Keep sight of your children while playing in the water
We hope you enjoy the Labor Day holiday and celebrate responsibly!
Mayor Jennifer Hobbs
