Labor Day - Activities all Weekend Long!

Christine Wei of Shermans Travel named the Finger Lakes as one of five places to go in September for fall colors . . . and more. "Foliage and wine," writes Wei. "Hot air balloons and culture. What could make for a better kickoff to fall?"

Between the New York State Festival of Balloons, bonfires and Native American flute music, wine tastings and farm-to-table foods, or gorgeous scenery, Labor Day is the last hurrah of summer which makes it a big deal.
