What to do for Labor Day in Austin, 2011


Ah, Labor Day. Some people look at it as the end of Summer. Not many Texans mind you, as we will surely be subjected to this blistering Summer weather for a few months to come. But rain or shine, we can all get behind celebrating a holiday, whether it’s from work, or school, or anything else that occupies your time. For many people, Labor Day is simply a long weekend to fill with fun, family, picnics, barbecues, camping, fishing, a trip to the lake, or just a good party. For others, Labor Day is a chance to catch up on some much-needed sleep. We can fully support that.

Labor Day is especially special for sports fans, as it means the NFL & College Football seasons are back! NCAA teams usually play their first games the week before Labor Day, with the NFL traditionally playing their first game the Thursday following Labor Day. Here in Austin, our Texas Longhorns will be taking on the Rice Owls on Saturday, September 3rd at 7pm at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. If you’re looking for a good place to watch the game, be sure to check out our list of Sports Bars in Austin!

We have put together a whole bunch ideas to help you make this last summer weekend of 2011 a memorable one. Check out all of the events we have listed for Labor Day in Austin! We will be adding more events to the list as they come across our desk. Do you know of a labor day event in Austin that you’d like to see featured on Do512?
