Labor Day Weekend Baltimore

Labor Day for many Americans marks the official end of summer. We close up the pools, finish the back-to-school shopping, and allow the Halloween pop-up stores to distract us from saying goodbye to the beach.

But did you know Labor Day was established to honor the American labor movement, and the contributions workers have made to strengthen the prosperity of our country?

Therefore, don’t let the summer’s end get you down. Instead, celebrate by checking out these events going on in the Baltimore, Maryland area!

5. Fell’s Point Haunted Pub Walk

Make the transition from summer to Halloween by booking a spooky night on the town with the Fell’s Point Baltimore Haunted Pub Walk Tour.

Learn about the haunted history as you pull up a chair at the bar. This event is always a fan-favorite.

Or maybe you’re more of a renaissance person?
