Labor Day 2022 is just around the corner, and Addison offers a range of ways to celebrate it with your family and friends. Whether you are looking for a unique experience and fun time out, a few days of rest and relaxation, or soaking up the sun, here are some ideas for enjoying the long weekend of the year.
Go to a Magic & Comedy Show: World-renowned comedy magician, Mike Williams, performs his Family Magic and Comedy Show at Addison Improv every other Saturday this fall season. Come see the two-time “Magician of the Year” Award winner, on Saturday, September 3, with your family and friends of all ages. Doors open at 1 pm, so you can enjoy lunch before a show full of laughs and surprises.
Go Shopping: Labor Day weekend is one of the most fun times to hit the mall with your family and friends! Explore Village on the Parkway, the North Corridor’s outdoor mall. This mall features an abundance of retailers, over twenty restaurants with outdoor seating, salons and spas, a movie theatre, and more! You turn this mall into an entire day trip or a fun activity to break up your Labor Day weekend.
Get a Massage: Maybe you feel like enjoying your holiday weekend in relaxation this year. If this sounds like you, explore Grand Spa and its various spa treatments. Whether you are in need of a massage, a nail treatment, or a fresh blowout, they’ll have you covered. Wind down this Labor Day weekend; you deserve it!
Go Swimming: Why not cool off from the Addison heat and splash in the pool this Labor Day? If you’re a member of The Club at Prestonwood, dip into their pool this holiday, maybe after a game of tennis or golf. If you’d like to cool off from home or without diving into the pool, you can opt to use your garden hose or a water gun for some fun and games with your loved ones.
Fire up the Grill: Grill up a barbecue in your backyard this Labor Day! Some main course grilling ideas include shish kabobs, baby back ribs, Cuban sandwich burgers, barbecued chicken pizza, grilled shrimp, and grilled vegetables. On the sweeter side of things, you could grill up a pot of s’mores, grilled peach sundaes, and grilled apple pie. Let’s get creative this year!
Have a Picnic at the Park: Box together a few sandwiches, pasta salad, deviled eggs, and hummus with chips, and take them to one of the many parks in Addison! A few park options include Addison Park Circle, North Addison Park, Vitruvian Park, and Winnwood Park. You could bring picnic blankets or enjoy one of their picnic tables and benches. Don’t forget your sunscreen! We all know the feeling of losing mental focus during long work days, whether from home or an office in Addison. Our minds wander, our eyes become heavy, and we begin to slump in our office chairs. Drinking another cup of coffee is starting to seem more stomach-churning than beneficial. There must be better ways to stay in control of our focus, so here are ten of them.
