Labor Day Weekend

Time to say goodbye to Summer and “hello” to Fall.  School is back in session, and the fall fashion is already on display in the clothing stores. But don’t worry, there is still plenty of hot and humid weather ahead of us, Summer is far from over.

Many of us are planning for a long and relaxing Labor Day weekend with friends and family. Maybe you’re planning a backyard barbecue or you might be looking to take a road trip.


Here are a few ideas for fun things to do in our area:

Kingsland Catfish Festival

As you know, this is one of the biggest and most crowded festivals in Camden County every year – and no wonder. This festival has it all from arts and crafts, to blooming onions, climbing walls, balloons, vintage cars and most importantly — the famous catfish dinner.

St Marys Community Market

This market takes place in downtown St. Marys on the waterfront every Saturday. Read more here.




St Simons LighthouseIf you are looking for a road trip, how about the Golden Isles area? Pack a nice picnic and load up your gang and take a trip north. One of our favorite places to visit is Jekyll Island with its vast, empty beaches. A great place to picnic is the shady St. Andrews Picnic Area at the south end of the island. But the Golden Isles area, especially St. Simons, is also known for its many restaurants. For Labor Day Weekend there are a couple of interesting events:

First Friday in downtown Brunswick

Downtown Promenade from 5 – 8. Take a stroll through our beautiful downtown district. Galleries and shops will be open and serving wine & snacks, with live music in the pocket parks.

Labor Day Invitational Arts & Craft Show – St. Simons Island, GA

This is the Annual Labor Day Weekend Invitational Arts & Crafts Show in Mallery Park (baseball fields in the village. The show takes place on September 3 & 4, 2011 from 10am to 5 pm both days. For more information call (912)262-0628.




Another of our favorite places on the coast to visit is Savannah. During Labor Day weekend the area has two great events on the schedule.

Savannah Craft Brew Fest
