Labor Day Picnic and Party Food Ideas
Celebrating Labor Day

Labor Day the first Monday of September is the last holiday of Summer and knowing what it is about is key to celebrate and enjoy even more.

History tells that Labor Day first celebration was back in 1880, and two names are linked to the initiative or its creation, Mathew Maguire Secretary of the Central Labor Union (CLU) who after a series of events of the CLU held on September 5th proposed creating a National Labor Day to be celebrated the first Monday of September; and Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor who in May of the same year inspired by the Annual Labor Festival of Toronto Canada brought the idea for the holiday.

By 1894 when Labor Day became an official federal holiday it was already celebrated by thirty US States.

Labor Day honors the American Labor Movement and contributions made by American workers to the development of the United States of America.

Street parades, festivals, speeches, and concerts are a few of the activities people enjoy on the Labor Day Weekend and the holiday is also considered the unofficial end of Summer.

This coming Labor Day Enjoy more the celebrations with the food you love. We want to suggest a few food ideas for enjoying at outdoors.
