Labor Day weekend is here! The holiday created for workers — and to fill the holiday-free gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving.
It’s your weekend to rest, put all your white clothes away, watch football, and do all the things you wanted to do before summer is officially over.
Check out the lineup of live music and events in and around the Lake Travis area. Journey out to the Hill Country for Austin Flea 1st Sundays at Jester King Brewery. Get to the big city for the Texas Longhorns season opener this Sunday or the Austin Triathlon on Labor Day.
Whatever you decide, enjoy the 3-day weekend and the short week ahead. We’ll see you out and about!
