10th Annual Great Irish Hooley Music Fest
For entertainment with a cultural twist this Labor Day, take in the 10th Annual Great Irish Hooley Music Fest at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant. “Hooley” is a Gaelic term for lively party with music, entertainment, and fun. You’ll hear traditional Irish music, Celt grass, folk, and blues by Irish bands. Admission and parking are free.
Labor Day Weekend Celebration
Stop by the Promenade at Sunset Walk for their Labor Day Weekend Celebration featuring live music and entertainment, DJs, street performers, delicious food, and more. The area has many other shopping and dining selections, too, so you can enjoy the festival as well as the area’s regular entertainment offerings.
Chocolate Kingdom Factory Tour
Chocolate lovers of all ages will want to add this sweet stop to the top of their must-do list during an Orlando Labor Day vacation. Chocolate Kingdom’s Factory Adventure Tour is an interactive tour that takes you from the cocoa bean all the way to the creamy, delicious chocolate treats you love to snack on. Your Personal Chocolate Tour Guide teams up with a “handsome prince” and the prince’s dragon sidekick to take you on an adventure through a Cacao Tree Greenhouse, a unique Chocolate Museum, the Mystical River of Chocolate, and finally to the Micro Batch Bean-to-the-Bar Factory utilizing old-world machinery in the creation of delicious chocolate desserts. The 45-minute tour includes samples along the way, and for an additional fee you can customize your own chocolate bar at the end of the tour.
Head Outside for Orlando Activities
Resorts, hotels, and vacation rentals alike all have quick access to outdoor spaces like pools, hot tubs, playgrounds, and more. Take a break from the theme parks as your daily dose of the outdoors and explore the other outdoor activities and attractions of Orlando. If you and the other members of your group are the adventurous type, grab some water and everyone’s sun gear and hit the local trails for a hike, or rent some bikes and explore the area around you.
Madame Tussauds Orlando
Located on International Drive along with many other must-see attractions to add to your Labor Day itinerary, Madame Tussauds wax museum features life size and life-like wax models. Get up close with many of the U.S.’s top actors, sports stars, pop icons, political and historical figures, and others. Each category or group of stars and celebrities has its own room, and the figures are organized and placed in ways that are great opportunities for silly photos, with you and your group members posed in the shot, too. If you want to see yourself carved in wax, it will take over 200 different body measurements and three to four months for the professional team of artists and sculptors to perfect your image to capture everything that’s unique about you.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
Experience the weird and fascinating artifacts and displays that will definitely have you and the kids saying, “I don’t believe it!” this Labor Day. Marvel at the strange collection of oddities like a shrunken human head, odd fossilized creatures, and other pieces from world traveler Robert Ripley’s crazy collection. Another unbelievable exhibit is centered around Mr. Ripley himself: he averaged 3,000 letters a day for over 20 years, receiving more mail than any other individual in history to that point.
Orlando’s many theme parks are the perfect place to spend a day or a whole trip. The many activities, attractions, rides, and more that the Disney parks, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and LEGOLAND, will keep everyone busy throughout a Labor Day adventure in Orlando.
