Labor Day marks the beginning of my favorite time of year for many different reasons. First of all, it signifies that autumn is on the way! Say goodbye to 100 degree plus humid days trudging through the grimy and crowded streets of New York City and say hello to the great “F’s”. Flannels, Football, Foliage, and Fall brews. I live for the beautiful weather of fall and all that it brings with it. Comfortable clothing, festive holidays, delicious comforting food and a whole host of themed beverages to go along with it. Bring it on.
As I was saying, Labor Day is a good day. However, while it is great because it hints at the glories to come, Labor Day Weekend is also wonderful in its own right because it happens to fall during one of the single most important events of the year- The Minnesota State Fair.
