Don’t Labor over what to do this holiday weekend – we have you covered!
Its Labor Day weekend in Seattle and all the traditional annual favorites are back: Bumbershoot, the Evergreen State Fair and the Washington State Fair (formerly known as The Puyallup).

We’ve come up with a short but sweet list of alternatives for you.
