Edmonton Labour Day celebrations 2014

Labour Day is considered by many to be the official end of summer. Scary and sad, we know. While the days of cold and darkness may be coming quickly, that doesn’t mean you can’t have one last big outing to mark the end of summer and the beginning of fall, right? Right.

We’re big advocates of having fun here at Great West Chrysler, as well as getting to know your community. We think one of the best ways to get to know the members in your community is to spend time with them at community events. Edmonton is full of events and fun things to do, which makes it one of the most desirable vacation locations in Alberta. We love it in Edmonton and know you do too.

Coming up is Labour Day weekend, which is Aug. 29 through Sept. 1. There are a variety of Edmonton Labour Day celebrations for you and your friends and family, and we are excited to see you out and about! How will you be celebrating your Labour Day? Here are a few ideas of Edmonton Labour Day celebrations 2014!
