Summer days grow shorter, kids go back to school, and your commute becomes 30 minutes longer. Labor Day is traditionally celebrated on the first Monday in September.

Labor Day is to acknowledge the American workers and to protest the dangerous conditions they worked in during the Industrial Revolution.

To commemorate our workers, we found three local events to enjoy before the upcoming work week:

FlyOver Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Strip’s NEWEST attraction, FlyOver Las Vegas, provides both adventure and refreshments on the Strip! Do you love a good adrenaline rush?

Take flight right on the strip. FlyOver provides the “feeling of flight” utilizing state-of-the-art technology.

Located next to the Hard Rock Café, you can Take Flight Right on the Strip, or find your way to The Lost Cactus Bar to enjoy a signature cocktail paired with a bite to eat.

Adult pricing starts at $34

Children pricing starts at $24

First Friday

Art, food, and friends… What more could you want on a relaxing Labor Day weekend? This year we are thrilled that First Friday falls around the same time.

Visitors and locals alike can experience 40 plus artists and the community they help foster!  Grab a tasty bite from one of Vegas’ local 15 food truck vendors or dance to LIVE music happening on the block.
