One of the great things about living in an apartment community, like Willow Creek Crossing Apartments in Fort Wayne, IN, is that when three day weekends come along, you’re not stuck at home mowing the lawn, cutting back the shrubbery, or doing all those other household projects that keep you from enjoying life with your family.
There are a lot of great things you can do this upcoming Labor Day Weekend, but make plans in advance, or the holiday will pass you by quickly. Remember that Labor Day is sort of the un-official end of summer, and a lot of the activities listed below will be over shortly, and won’t come back until next summer.
So here are a few events happening over Labor Day Weekend that you might find fun.
First, one of the largest events of the entire year takes place just up the road in Auburn, Indiana, the world famous Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival. The multi day event starts on Thursday, and runs through Monday. Click here to go to their website. Many events, like the parade, are free, while others may cost a few bucks.
And the season is just about over for Fort Wayne’s minor league baseball team, the Tin Caps. Catch a game Labor Day Weekend, as the Caps host the Great Lake Loons on Saturday (with Fireworks), and Sunday at 7:05pm, and Monday afternoon at 1:05pm. After that, only a couple more home games until next April. Learn more here.
Another summer event, the Farmer’s Market, will be ending soon as well. Just a couple more Saturdays left at their downtown venue, the Barr Street Market.
And there are just two more free Friday night free music concerts at Jefferson Pointe. Labor Day weekend features Rosemary Gates, and the last concert on September 6 ends with Goodnight Gracie.
Of course, you can enjoy the three day holiday weekend by just doing nothing. Remember, with fall weather on the way, our two pools won’t be open a whole lot longer either, so enjoy them while you can. Whatever you do, be safe, and please be courteous to your neighbors.
