Weekdays 12:00PM-3:00PM


This weekend is Labor Day Weekend, and I’m sure it looks different for a lot of this year. Coronavirus has still put a big damper on travel, and Labor Day weekend is one of the larger travel weekends of the year.

Even if you did have to cancel your travel plans this year, and you’ll be spending the long weekend in Charlotte, there is still plenty of things you can do.

Here’s a list of some events, and things going on this weekend in Charlotte, but please remember if you do choose to go out, to wear an ask, and stay socially distant.
