Take a deep breath, find somewhere to sit or if you’re standing while reading this, find something to lean on. (OK, you good?) We’re here to remind you that there are only FOUR more months in 2018. Summer’s winding down, we’re already seeing Halloween decorations in the stores and those holiday retail emails will pop up any second (if they haven’t already). Before you know it, 2019 will be here and you checked off maybe one (or half?) resolution off your 2018 list!

Vegas Labor Day Events 2018

Lucky for you, if you’re heading to Vegas you can still enjoy the spirit of summer, sun and warm weather. The season’s far from over and you can chill by the pool, party all night without a jacket and drink tasty cocktails along the Strip.

Those winter blues don’t have to weigh you down. There are way too many things to do in Vegas during Labor Day weekend to keep you busy.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love hitting up all the city's vegan spots, having staycations and catching shows by my favorite musical acts. Since I've ditched rainy Seattle 20+ years ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas hotel and entertainment articles for, the LA Times, Frommer's and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me hanging with my two girls, along with our shih-tzu and tiger cat.
