Labor Day is one of those holidays that creep up on you. It signifies the end of the summer. The last dance. The final countdown. The fat lady singing. Summer never ends gradually in Dupage County, Illinois. It usually goes from scorching hot one week, to sweater-wearing, leaf-changing, wind-blowing chilly the following week. With that said, we had better make this Labor Day Weekend in Elmhurst Illinois count.

As much as big Labor Day festivities can be fun, sometimes the best way to celebrate the holiday weekend is simply by creating your own get-together to spend time with your family and friends. Here are a few ideas for how to spend your Labor Day in Elmhurst, Illinois.

A Picnic in the Park: Pack up a picnic basket with all the necessities - sandwiches, chips, fruit, and cookies - and take the family for a picnic in the park. Here are a list of Elmhurst Parks to choose from - 23 in total! (

Host Labor Day Movie Night: Invite people over to your Elmhurst Home for a Labor Day get-together, but do something a little different than the typical BBQ. Get a hold of a projector and a screen (or just a sheet pinned up to the outside of the house), and show your favorite summer movies to a wanting audience underneath the summer sky. Serve burgers with a side of popcorn. For dessert, try ice cream sundaes topped with movie theater candy toppings - M&Ms, Raisinets, and JuJubes!
