Labor Day is coming up on September 7th! Due to COVID-19, it becomes necessary to keep social distancing while we make the most of the long weekend this year.
Created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. For many Americans, it also means the end of summertime.
Street parades might be too crowded. Amusement parks are not fully opened yet. In this article, we help you identify 5 Ideas to safely celebrate the long Labor Day Weekend in 2020.
1. Grill Party for Foodies
Summer is not complete without a few grill parties with families and friends. For example, here in Chicago (where Swagger is located), Lake Michigan creates dozens of perfect spots for you to enjoy a fun grill party while appreciating the picturesque view of the lake and the city.
Want to stay away from the crowd? You can also hold the party at home. Maybe you can turn your backyard into a movie theater. Then you can have both a movie party and a grill party at home.
2. Picnic and Games
If a grill needs too much work for you, an alternative for foodies could be a picnic party. Simpler preparation. Reading and playing music are perfect partners of picnics. If you have young kids, don't forget to bring your family's favorite board games. Nothing is better than a happy day with delicious food and laughter.
What to bring with you: It can get chili when you sit outside. Why not bring a light-weighted and warm shawl with you to the party? Cold drinks and warm food taste better when you are feeling cozy and relaxed.Warm Shawls are on sale on www.studioswagger.com. Click the photo above to see more.

4. Hit the Water
Labor Day Weekend is the perfect opportunity to take to the water one last time before the cold weather hits. If you happen to live by a sea, a river, or a lake (like here in Chicago), water activities could be great for this long weekend. It is not as crowded in the water so you can practice social distancing. Stand-up paddling, fishing, and kayaking are beginner-friendly. If you are looking for something more challenging, you can pick up sailing and windsurfing with some help from someone with experience. What to bring with you: Sunscreen, bug repellents, moisturizer, swimsuits, goggles, swim caps... Hiking and water activities require a lot of gear packing work. An organizer will be your best partner for a better outdoor experience. Organizers and toiletry bags are on sale on www.studioswagger.com. Click the photo above to see more.
5. Road-trip Getaway
This year, we have stayed at home longer than ever... Suffice it to say this summer has been far from ideal. It is time to hit the road for a late-summer excursion to brighten your spirit! Explore somewhere nearby that you have never visited before! Small towns and secret forests might surprise you.
What to bring with you: Remember to take a nap when it is not your turn to drive. A set of an eye mask and a neck pillow made of genuine silk gives you a silky touch both on your skin and in your dream. Luxury travel sets are on sale on www.studioswagger.com. Click the photo above to see more.
Enjoy your long Labor Day weekend! Have fun and stay safe :)
