You know it’s time for the annual fall festival when warm summer days turn to crisp autumn nights, and the leaves begin to turn a kaleidoscope of colors. A fall festival offers a family-friendly alternative to traditional Halloween activities, and they are the most anticipated fall event for school fundraisers, church get-togethers, and neighborhood celebrations.
Though Labor Day is now celebrated as a day of rest and relaxation at summer’s end, it really is a yearly tribute to American workers and their achievements—people who work hard and work efficiently—people who don’t easily quit. Labor Day was started by either Peter McGuire, general secretary of Carpenters and Joiners, or by Matthew Maguire, a machinist. It was first celebrated as a holiday in September 5, 1882 in New York City. It became a national holiday in 1887 and was originally celebrated with parades, picnics and speeches.

A Festival Every Night…
Summer is the time when people enjoy the magic of outdoor festivals. It’s been said that there are so many festivals in this season that a person could easily wander his state and hit a festival every night from June 1st to September 1st. Most communities have their share of art festivals, wine festivals, community concerts in the park, and food festivals. But there are some that are noteworthy.
Outdoor Patio Lights and Party Themes Make the Night Special
Your patio is the extension of your living room. And summer, with extended hours of daylight, is the perfect time to extend your parties out onto the patio, deck, and into the yard—and with the right lighting, the party can extend well into the night! Outdoor patio lights and special party themes will make your outdoor summer parties memorable.
The Ambience that People Want
Restaurants with outdoor seating offer something that people want—the outdoor dining experience. A leisurely lunch, an evening celebration with friends, or a romantic dinner are more appealing in an outdoor setting with ambience. Whether it’s a rooftop terrace, an intimate outdoor café, an outdoor wine and coffee bar on a second story patio, an elegant restaurant with a breathtaking lake view, or a table for six at a covered beer garden — restaurants with outdoor seating are in demand.
