Hooray for Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend not only a time to take a break; it’s also a time to reflect on the social and economic achievements of the hard working Americans of the past and present. So clear your mind, relax, and have some fun!

Santa Ana, California has plenty of Labor Day weekend activities! One idea is to celebrate the day of Labor Day at the Santa Ana Zoo! There are special speakers like the Democratic nominee for Governor of California, plus others. The zoo festivities will include free admission to the zoo as well as various fun and games in honor of the hard working families out there celebrating. If you’re wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the festivities, you and yours can always take it easy and make use of the Pacific Electric Bicycle Trail going through Santa Ana!

However you choose to celebrate this weekend, we hope you have a fun and safe holiday with those that you love.
