As warm summer winds down and we prepare for a vibrant fall, you’re probably planning outdoor activities to celebrate the changing seasons. Take advantage of the Labor Day long weekend with nearby events and festivities! The Reunion team has compiled several ideas close to home for you to enjoy.
Host a Neighborhood Barbeque
Few gatherings say “summer” like a BBQ cookout. You’ve likely been making the most of grill season out on your patio over the past few months, so use Labor Day as a final farewell! Invite friends and neighbors to your yard for a memorable feast filled with all your favorites, like burgers, hot dogs, and ribs — but don’t forget summer veggies like corn-on-the-cob and zucchini! If you want inspiration for a full BBQ buffet menu, we have a few classic grilled delights to tempt you.
Attend Denver Meet in the Street
September 4 – 6 marks the final Denver Meet in the Street of the year. Head to the 16th Street Mall in Downtown Denver with your family for an energetic festival that includes spinning chairs, live music, and games for all ages. While you’re in the area, experience patio dining and fare from local vendors for a sumptuous lunch or a tasty on-the-go snack. With downtown Denver only a 30-minute drive from your Reunion home, you can attend Meet in the Street for a few hours or turn the trip into a day-long outing in the big city.
Create Crafts at Home
Looking for a break from the sun by spending time indoors? Create an autumn craft as a hands-on activity that gets the whole family involved! Pull out some construction paper and cut it into strips to make paper pumpkins with your kids — they’ll add a homey touch to any room and ready you for fall. Likewise, you can transform red, orange, and yellow plastic leaves into wreaths using a few simple home supplies like wire and glue. These make festive displays for your front door — or anywhere in your home — to welcome the new season. If you make a few extra pumpkins or wreaths, share them with your neighbors!
Whether you intend to stay home Labor Day weekend or venture out for activities, you’re sure to find plenty of fun events close to Reunion. Interested in our unique community or want to learn more about Reunion neighborhoods and floorplans? Get in touch today.
