It is cliché to say that time flies, but each year when Labor Day weekend approaches we are seemingly caught off guard. Where did the summer go? What about all those plans we had for family fun together? We just got busy and the weeks went by.

Don’t worry. We still have time to make some amazing summer memories on the Alabama Gulf Coast this Labor Day weekend. We can do all our favorite activities: beach time, dining on fresh seafood, shopping, golf, fishing and enjoying the attractions. And there are plenty of events to add music, art and some competitive running.

The Labor Day weekend delivers these great events:
