The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated by labor unions in New York City in the 1880s with a grand parade in honor of the working class. Now most people just think of it as a day off work and a chance for a last end-of-summer family outing.
The heat wave continues here in SoCal so beach activities are definitely on the agenda this weekend. The 28th annual Malibu Chili Cook-Off and Carnival kicks off tonight and goes through the weekend.
Also at the beach this weekend is the Supergirl Jam which takes place Sunday in Venice. There will be live-streaming of the competition at http://thewb.com/supergirl and we’ll provide highlights of the event on this site.
U.S. Open: If you’re a tennis fan but can’t make it to Flushing Meadows this weekend, you can catch third and fourth round action on The Tennis Channel, ESPN, and CBS.
