Let the Labor Day Festivities Begin!

A hike in gas prices this Labor Day weekend (courtesy of Hurricane Isaac) offers the perfect excuse to stay close to home.

Like many of you, I plan to spend Labor Day trying to soak up the last of the "summer fun" by celebrating pool side and grilling out with family and friends. But that's not the only thing going on in the Piedmont this weekend. Here are a few more ideas:

Cinema Under the Stars: "The Princess Bride" (Rated PG) – grab a blanket, mix up a bag of trail mix (It's National Trail Mix Day!), and head out to Reynolda Gardens on Friday night, for an adventure with outlaws, sword fights, a damsel in distress, and a prince!

Silly Saturday – Farmyard Frenzy – Spend the day at the "farm" at the Greensboro Children's Museum on Saturday. Kids can use all their senses to learn about life on the farm, visit with some farmyard animals, make farmyard crafts, and participate in the silly animal races!

Maize Adventure – I've been looking forward to this since I visited it for the first time last fall. The Maize Adventure officially opens on Saturday, Sept. 1. This unique outdoor experience at Kersey Valley is a great experience with the kids, in a group, or even with the family dog! In addition to the corn maze, the Maize Adventure includes a pumpkin patch, gem dig, dinosaur discovery, and giant jumping pillow. Check out their Labor Day schedule.

Summer on Trade – If you missed this party in the Arts District of downtown W-S this summer, here's your final chance. Experience lively local music, art galleries, unique shopping and more.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Allowing a tot to don self-selected clothes admittedly takes longer than picking out his duds yourself. But the payoff is a child who knows who he is and will be more able to stay true to himself in the face of peer pressure.
