Can you feel it? We’re hours away from a much needed three-day weekend!

While we haven’t had enough of summer, we’re stoked about all the celebrations happening this Labor Day weekend! We count down this annual workers’ holiday with our pick of the best activities (and treats!) this weekend, after the cut:

West-Indian American Day Carnival

What better way to celebrate Labor Day than with awesome music, fabulous food and last displays of sexy skin than with this Caribbean celebration? Head on down to Crown Heights, Brooklyn and get your party on! More details here. 

If you’re an early riser, join in on the pre-parade activities before dawn with J’ouvert (that’s French for… “Daybreak”). Revel in the rhythmic sounds of the steel drums and whistles, as you throw powdered paint at each other! If you’ve never been, you’ll be glad we reminded you.

Head on down to Randall’s Park for a three-day dance music extravaganza with the city’s largest EDM festival! This year’s lineup is stellar, with superstar DJs David Guetta, Nicky Romero and Armin van Buuren, and smashers like Dash Berlin and Pete Tong. We’re looking out for our faves like Jamie xx and Bonobo, so you can expect a little bit of everything! Live a little, get your tickets here. 

Outdoor Movie Screenings 

Not the get-lost-in-the-music-crowd type person? Time to break out soft blankets, as you indulge in your favorite Cuban-Mexican foods and spiked lemonade, outside! Habana Outpost in Brooklyn will entertain you this August 31 with Whitney Houston’s iconic ‘The Bodyguard’, in conjunction with their Movie Night. It’s going to be crowded, and you might have to wait in line for your food, but we guarantee an awesome time!

Up for a James Bond flick? Skyfall will be screening at South Street Seaport, Front/Row Cinema on August 31. Did we mention it’s free? Get more info here!

When All Else Fails.. 

… and you might end up bailing on plans to head outside, we know exactly what you need. Kick-butt, boozy pints of ice cream, anybody? Our buds at Tipsy Scoop have an awesome deal for you this Labor Day weekend!

Get 3 pints (including delivery) of boozy flavors like Frangelico and Cafe Patron, Dark Chocolate Whiskey and Salted Caramel and Raspberry Limoncello sorbet today, for only $40! Seriously, what are you waiting for? Order ’em here, before they run out!
