Labor Day kicks off September activities, launching Houston's season of fall festivals, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes. 

Celebrating Labor Day in Houston this year brings a host of fun activities, like a good, old-fashioned Ice Cream Social in Friendswood and some high-flying Labor Day Fun at the Lone Star Flight Museum. Plus, September brings back some of our favorite fall festivals and fairs, like the Hummingbird Festival at Kleb Woods Nature Center, the annual Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival at Blessington Farms, and Mid-Autumn Fest at the Children's Museum of Houston, and the Fort Bend County Fair
