Labor Day Weekend Fireworks

Summer is winding down and Labor Day weekend is upon us! There's no better place to spend the long, holiday weekend than the Lake of the Ozarks. Keep reading to learn some history about Labor Day and fireworks, as well as a list of where you can watch fireworks over the lake this year.

The Labor Day Holiday


Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day is a holiday dedicated to the contributions and achievements of American workers. In the late 18th century, organized strikes and rallies protested the poor work conditions. In 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, which is known at the first Labor Day parade. In 1894, Labor Day finally became a federal holiday. Today, the holiday marks the end of summer. People across the country celebrate with barbecues, parades, fireworks and more.

Labor Day Fireworks 


The Labor Day parades are obviously symbolic of the strikes and marches from the Industrial Revolution period, but how did the fireworks come into play? While fireworks may have began as something to demonstrate our freedom on the 4th of July, they've evolved into a fun, family activity enjoyed at almost every summer holiday. Who doesn't love a fireworks display, especially over the glistening water?
