A long holiday weekend is coming in the States.  (realizing that when you are retired every day is a 'weekend'...)  Some places have celebrations, or parades, or picnics etc, are there any near you and do you plan to attend?

I live in a very tourist driven town, so there is always something going on. Currently the weather is amazing, and perfect for any outdoor activity. So the weekend will be a busy one around the community.

As for us....we have stuff to do at home, so laying low this weekend. Maybe some beach time, and relaxing. :)

My town doesn't do much for Labor Day. Last weekend was the back to school fest, with a 5K run, family walk, games, food and fireworks.


Next weekend is our "Pathways" parade (sort of a founder's day event), Octoberfest, games, food, art show, fireworks, etc.


We're planning on getting out the smoker and slow cooking some ribs, a pork roast and maybe a beef roast. I might even get a chicken and some salmon, since those are really good when hickory smoked, too. It's one of the tall smokers with 5 shelfs, so we try to fill it up when we do that. I'll package up a lot of it for later use. It's wonderfu, during a January blizzard, to have the house smell like a summer BBQ, when I reheat some of it.
