Labor Day

Boise Central Trades & Labor Council Facebook

The Boise’s Central Trades & Labor Council’s annual Labor Day picnic is coming up this Monday. Although there are fewer labor union marches in the streets nowadays, the holiday prompts workers to remember what was gained through the sacrifices made by union workers.

School is back in session, temperatures have mellowed and Labor Day is Monday. It’s only a matter of time before we’re firmly back in sweater weather territory. As summer ebbs, the final three-day weekend of the season offers the chance for a last little trip.

If you’re going camping over Labor Day, be sure to take a jacket. It will definitely be cold and forecasters say some mountain areas could even see snow.

Temperatures will also drop in the Treasure Valley, thanks to an anomaly in the Pacific Ocean. Forecasters say for the first time ever, three large hurricanes were recorded east of the International Date Line at the same time.
