Labor Day is often considered the last hurrah before summer ends. It was created as a day to honor the American worker and his or her daily efforts. Staying home and sleeping in is always a great option, but if you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous for your long weekend, here are some fun ways to spend Labor Day in Chicago.
Chicago Jazz Festival
This annual musical event is entering its 39th year and presents free live music from August 31st through September 3rd.

Navy Pier Summer Fireworks
