It's Labor Day weekend in East Texas, for some people it means an extra day off and for others, it'll be just another normal weekend. No matter if you get a free day off or not, you'll be looking for something to do, just like any other weekend.

Seeing how it's a holiday weekend, of course, there are going to be sales on mattresses, refrigerators, laptops, sneakers and sales on all kinds of other things. If you're looking for a sale, there is only one destination this Labor Day weekend and there are a few activities for your family to enjoy themselves at this weekend too.

When I went to complete this list, I figured there would be more organized events and activities besides the few I found, but my guess is that event organizers probably feel that a lot of us will be gathering with our friends and families this weekend and firing up the grills and hitting the lakes as we 'unofficially' say goodbye to summer.

So, what is there to do this Labor Day weekend in East Texas?
