What is considered by most the last holiday of summer, Labor Day activities are being planned in the region, including family and friends making plans throughout Massac County.
The annual Labor Day parade, sponsored by the Metropolis Lions Club, will delight residents of all ages, beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 1
The parade will form at the courthouse and proceed down Fifth Street to Fort Massac. The street will be closed for the parade.
No pre-registration is required, and late entries will be accepted the morning of the parade.
No all-terrain vehicles (three- or four-wheelers) will be allowed in the parade, unless it is pulling a float.
All units for the parade should meet at the courthouse to be in position between 9-9:30 a.m.
For more information, call 564-2467.
The City of Metropolis will sponsor free musical entertainment from 4-8 p.m. at Fort Massac State Park on Labor Day.
The celebration will kick off with The Melungeons, who will perform at 4 p.m., followed by Blend at 5:30 p.m. The Cuttin’ Jessies will wrap up the event, starting at 7 p.m.
Concessions will be available for purchase, and attendees are asked to bring their lawn chairs.
