For Lake Texoma, Labor Day typically symbolizes the end of summer the beginning of fall and the last day to wear white for some. As children head back to school and temperatures start to drop, fall is around the corner. Labor Day weekend is one of the last times families can get together and have some fun family time before we head back into our daily routines.
Labor Day is one of the biggest holidays celebrated on Lake Texoma, nothing beats celebrating hard work and an extended weekend by enjoying the water and being surrounded by friends and family.
Labor Day is not all about burgers, beer, and fun times on the water. Established nationwide in the late 19th century, Labor Day is a dedication to the achievements of American workers and the contributions they have made to the prosperity of the country.
At Lighthouse Resort & Marina we have some great family fun activities lined up to make your holiday weekend one you’ll never forget.
Things are going to get spicy Saturday September 2nd from 12pm to 4pm at the Lighthouse Lodge. Show off your cooking talents by being the greatest salsa master on the peninsula. Entry fee is $5 and can be paid at the Lighthouse Office (cash or card).
