Fair Share of CNY Labor Day Weekend Events

There are plenty of Labor Day events to take you through to the end of summer.

By this time next week, we’ll be commuting via school bus or behind one. Yes, it’s the end of the 2016 Great New York State Fair as we know it, and I feel fine. However, there are plenty of events going on throughout CNY. With the exception running through the heads of children, it’s technically not the end of the summer. There is much to anticipate.

To brighten your spirits, here are a couple comedic offerings, a football season kickoff, cinema al fresco, stage, acrobatics and music. Enjoy yourself, get those last fair kicks in and have a great weekend.
