Labor Day weekend – the last official summer hurrah for many of us – is right around the corner. This final warm weather holiday is summer’s bookend, and we will definitely want to make some fun summer memories before the kids get into the full swing of school and the cooler weather starts to creep in on us.

West Michigan has a lot of late summer family fun planned, from parades, a pancake breakfast, and festivals on tap for this year’s celebrations.
