Labor Day Weekend is upon us. To your delight (or dismay,) the unofficial end of summer has arrived. Soon, days will get shorter and temperatures will fall. Labor Day is a great time to relax with family and friends. Following are things to do this Labor Day in Katy, Cypress, Houston & environs; some of which you can even share with your pets.
Make it a Pool Day
Most local pools will close after this weekend. This, therefore, may be your last chance to soak up some poolside fun. Find some friends or get the family together. Then, grab food to grill and munch on, and you’re sure to have a great time.
Go on a Day Trip
Chances are, you may be too late to plan a Labor Day getaway at this point, but you can still take a day trip. Find a nearby town or park you’ve always wanted to visit, grab a few snacks, and enjoy a short pet-friendly road trip. Some of our favorite day trips include Galveston, Kemah, and Spring.
Attend Local Events
One of the most extraordinary things about holiday weekends is the free local events and celebrations. Many places celebrate Labor Day by having parades and festivals. What’s even better about this is you can usually have a fun-filled day without breaking the bank. Finding events near you is easy. Check out these Houston and Katy event calendars and plan your festivities accordingly.
Please be sure to leave your skittish, noise-phobic pets at home if you plan to attend noisy or crowded events. Not all pets enjoy these types of festivities and are better left at home in the care of a professional pet sitter.
What better way to beat the late summer heat than by enjoying some of the local Labor Day sales? Enjoy some retail therapy, get a great deal, and make every cent of your hard-earned money count. Before including your pet in your shopping spree, however, we encourage you to check local mall websites or call for their pet policies.
This Labor Day, you may just want to lounge around in pajamas and cuddle with your fur baby. According to history.com, “Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.” As a hard worker myself, I look forward to laying low on Labor Day and recovering from the hectic summer season.
No matter how you choose to spend the holiday weekend, we’re sure it’ll be fantastic since, hopefully, you won’t be at work!
