Labor Day Plans

Labor Day is one of the last weekends that tourists visit the islands and for you to end your summer with some patriotic fun! It is the perfect time to spend time with family and friends, go surfing, or have a cookout.

Either way we have some interesting recipes for you to try and bring with you to your Labor Day activities!
