It’s going to be an AMAZING long weekend!! The sun will be shining and the parks will be packed! Here are whats open/closed. As usual, the movie theatre is probably the only thing to do if you’re afraid of the sun.

Labour Day: An annual holiday celebrated all over the world that resulted from the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.
