Labor Day Events and More September Fun in Macomb County

Pack a bit more fun into the end of summer at one of these Labor Day weekend, late summer and early fall events in Macomb County.

But don’t count summer out just yet. There’s still plenty of family summer fun to be had before the homework, extracurriculars and parent-teacher conferences fully kick back in, and the long Labor Day weekend is primetime to squeeze it in.
