U.S. National Whitewater Center Labor Day Celebration
Cap off the long holiday weekend with a 5K or 15K trail race at the U.S. National Whitewater Center, Sunday, Sept. 3. Following the race, the center has a day of fun activities planned, including yoga, a cornhole tournament, live music and a fireworks finale.
If there’s any sure-fire way to make this holiday weekend memorable, it’s by doing a downward facing dog pose next to a goat. The folks at Wish We Had Acres are hosting goat yoga on the farm Sunday, Sept. 3 at 5 p.m. You bring your mat and they’ll supply the cute baby goats.
18th Annual Charlotte Labor Day Parade
Celebrate Labor Day with this annual uptown parade featuring labor organizations, schools and civic groups. The parade begins at North Tryon Street and 10th Street at 11 a.m.
