Lauderdale and Miami to festivals in Hollywood and Boca Raton—and pulled five that might just fit into your weekend of relaxation. So take a break from filling in spreadsheets and taping up boxes; explore these amazing South Florida Labor Day events to get the most of your mini-vaca.
Labor Day Weekend Half-Pint Tour (Fri. Sept 2nd)
As a group of community-conscious Honda dealers near Miami, we never condone drinking and driving. So this Labor Day weekend, when your inner-self is begging to indulge in some libations, hop on the ale trolley and take a tour of Florida’s thriving craft beer scene with the connoisseurs at Brew Thru SRQ. The tour will showcase local breweries, beer gardens, and hipster hotspots, and stops will include Main Street’s World of Beer, JDubs Brewery, and 210 Tavern—all mainstays in the area. Geek out with other fellow beer enthusiasts and come sample the region’s backyard-brewed pints.
The Half-Pint Tour will be hosted in Sarasota (just a short drive across FL-70 from West Palm Beach) on Friday, September 2nd. Check-in is between 5:30 and 6:00 PM is at World of Beer, which is located at 1888 Main St. Arrive early! Tickets cost around $45 and can be purchased here. More information about Brew Thru SRQ and the tour can be found on their website, brewthrusrq.com.
Hard Rock Live Presents: George Lopez (Sat. Sept. 3rd)
George Lopez wears many hats: He’s a famed stand-up comedian and actor, talk show host, best-selling author, film and TV producer, and family man. He’s currently the star and creator of “Lopez,” a self-titled comedy now in its second season, and continues to tour the country with his standup act. And this Labor Day weekend you can catch his multifaceted show when it hits the Hard Rock Live stage in Hollywood, FL—pixel-free, of course.
George Lopez’s show will begin at 8:00 PM at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Hard Rock Live theater) on Saturday, September 3rd. Tickets are priced starting at $45 and can be purchased here at the Hard Rock Live site.
Labor Day 5K Run/Walk for LANES (Mon. Sept 5th)
Kick off Labor Day with a healthy 5K, and support your local non-profits at the same time! This year’s event is hosted by WOKB 1680, and portions of participant fees will go toward LANES (Loving, Assisting, Nurturing, Educating & Supporting), which is the area’s youth-mentoring program specifically catered to teenage girls. By participating in the 5K, you’ll help these children develop necessary life skills and strengthen their character so that they have a sure-footed path into adulthood. Whether you love or loathe lacing up the sneakers, what better way to spend your morning than donating sore muscles and some cash to a good cause?
The race will be held a bit north of Port St. Lucie at Barnett Park in Orlando on Monday, September 5th. The opening ceremony begins at 8:45 AM and the race will begin at 9:00 AM. Registration fees are $25 for adults and $10 for children 15 years of age and under. Tickets can be purchased online here.
