A List of All the Best Labor Day Activities In Philadelphia

Labor Day is around the corner and we know residents of the Isle like to make the most of everything the city has to offer, especially on holidays and special occasions. There’s always so much going on and we know it can be overwhelming trying to sort through all of it.

Planning can be tricky in our residents’ fast-paced lifestyle, so we thought we would make it a little easier by compiling a list of all the things you might want to check out in the city and the neighborhood this Labor Day weekend. We hope you make the most of the last days of summer and have a lot of fun.
