Ah, Labor Day, how we love you and yet hate you at the same time. Labor Day weekend is glorious because it means three days off work for most Americans, but it’s also an awful holiday because it marks the unofficial end to summer.

If we have to say farewell to summer, we might as well do it with a drink in hand and that’s exactly what a huge number of Americans plan to do. According to Flavorful World, 147 million Americans will reach for an ice cold beer this weekend.

What will we be doing as we tip one back? Well, 67% of us plan to fire up the grill, 36% of us will watch a movie either at home or at the theater, and 35% of people will drink their beer alone as they soak in some personal quiet time.

Speaking of beer, the Parlor City Oktoberfest is just around the corner (Saturday, October 14th) and you can consider this your official invite. The Parlor City Oktoberfest will be a NINE-hour celebration with authentic German foods and desserts, performances from the likes of John Steven’s Doubleshot Polka Band, and the Czechoslovak Moravian Club Dancers, an activity area for kids, craft beers, vendors and more! This is an all ages event, but you must be 21 to drink. Oh, and admission is free for kids 13 and younger!
