It’s Labor Day weekend!
An extra day off…. (usually) and all that extra time that comes with it… Bliss – right? Well, here’s my top 5 things to do this Labor Day weekend:
- The Missouri Botanical Garden Japanese Festival – this annual three-day celebration of Japanese Culture taking place every Labor Day weekend at the Missouri Botanical Garden features plenty of art, dance, food and entertainment.
- Big Muddy Blues Festival – Music is the big draw on Laclede’s Landing on Labor Day weekend. The Big Muddy Blues Festival is an outdoor music festival featuring 40 bands from local and nationally known artists. Musicians will perform on three stages set up throughout the Landing. Daily admission is $10 a person. Restaurants on the Landing will be serving up live music and food and drinks during the festival as well.
- If you haven’t been to the Little Black Dress: From Mourning to Night exhibition at the Missouri History Museum, you’re about out of time and it’s worth stopping by. The exhibit charts the hue’s long journey to daylight through the most versatile of garments. The exhibit showcases more than 60 dresses from the museum’s collection, offering a broad view of how women’s fashions have changed. Admission is free.
- The Vines Brother’s Happy Hour at Propoganda – “Join STL-Style’s Jeff and Randy Vines for Happy Hour at Propaganda! These city-lovin’ twins will be slinging drinks and entertaining you in stereo. You can’t spell COCKTAILS without STL!”
- Her Turn: Revolutionary Women of Chess celebrates the legacies of many of the game’s greatest female players. Highlights from the collection of the World Chess Hall of Fame and loans from the John G. White Chess Collection at the Cleveland Public Library and private collections provide insight into the careers of U.S. and World Women’s Chess Champions, writers, organizers, and other trailblazing women.
