Labor Day is just a few days away, and that means that there are tons of things for Charleston residents and visitors to do this weekend. Following are our top picks for events and things to do this Labor Day weekend:
Saturday, September 1st
*Tap into your creative side with the From Void to Void exhibition at Redux Contemporary
Art Center. This exhibition will feature pieces created by Croatian artist Sinisa Kukec, who works primarily in using found objects to create artworks that tell a story. (136 St. Philip Street, Downtown)
*If you’re more interested in feasting on great eats, you’ll want to check out the Food Truck Rodeo being held at the Charleston Pour House. Admission is free, and you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy live music while you order food from your favorite local food trucks such as Roti Rolls and Auto-Bahn. (1977 Maybank Highway)
*Dying for some football? The 2012 Citadel Football season kicks off at 6 p.m. at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Citadel will be playing Charleston Southern.
*Head downtown to the gorgeous Marion Square (located between Meeting and King Streets) to enjoy The Charleston Farmers Market. Shop for fresh local produce, plants, cut flowers, shrimp, herbs, and more. Or come by to grab a quick breakfast or lunch while you enjoy live entertainment. Not interested in the food or plant offerings? There will be plenty of arts and crafts for sale.
Sunday, September 2nd
*Head over to Park Circle’s Mixson neighborhood to enjoy the Maker’s Market, which is held each month. Nom on some delicious creations sold by various food trucks, enjoy some local brews, tap your feet while listening to live music, and shop for goods sold by locals. This event is great for all ages! (4400 Marblehead Lane, North Charleston)
If you want to bring the whole family to something historic on Labor Day, consider heading over to the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant or the Fort Sumter National Monument.
