Labor Day weekend has finally arrived. Take advantage of the long weekend and squeeze in as much fun as you can because on Tuesday, it’s back to school.
Go to a Festival
See the city from atop of a ferris wheel, eat an elephant ear or two and enjoy the fun and games at a local festival.
- Michigan Renaissance Festival @ Michigan Renaissance Festival Grounds
- Michigan State Fair @ Suburban Collection, Novi
- Romeo Peach Festival @ Downtown Romeo
- Arts, Beats & Eats @ Downtown Royal Oak
- Saline Community Fair @ Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds
Get Wet & Wild
Summer pools and splash parks close after Labor Day weekend so make sure to have plenty of fun in the sun! Our personal favorite is Willow Pool at the Huron-Clinton Metropark.

- Creatopia (Plymouth)
- Boho Mini (Detroit)
- Make a Field Goal Game @ Home Depot (multiple locations)
