“Labor Day marks the day in 1894 that Congress declared the first Monday in September a national holiday to honor the nation’s workers and their contributions to the well-being of the country. Labor Day’s roots date back to the 1886 Haymarket Riot in Chicago.
Celebrate with blocks of rock from your favorite WIIL Rock artists all weekend long!
“Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports (particularly football), begin about this time.”
With the temps being what they are called for this weekend it doesn’t feel like the end of summer.
So, if you’re boating, biking, grillin’, chillin’ or god forbid working make sure you have WIIL Rock up and on all weekend long!
