Well, after many fits and false starts, folks trying to bring our season of fun to a ridiculously early close (I’m looking at you, Glendale), and a whole lotta bellyaching about how it’s not fair (um, that would be me), the time has come to acknowledge: summer break is over. It’s Labor Day weekend, and, while it may mark the end of summer, it’s also known in some circles as the biggest weekend of them all. We’re going to fill every moment with fairs and festivals, (hello, Sailor!), cook-offs and concerts, and enjoy the last hurrah of many of our favorite summer series.
And never fear, while your white-wearing days may be over, the fun is just beginning. Check out our September GoList if you doubt me, for the scoop on the awesome awesomeness ahead. (Not to get all spoilery on you, but get ready to be blown away by mouth-watering lobster, festivals galore, the return of the butterflies, and the block party of the century.)
Now get out there and enjoy summer's last gasp, because the best is yet to come. And we're going to have every last bit of it on our calendar.
