Originally it was intended to take the form like that of the Fête du Travail as in France with parades and worker demonstrations. However overtime, it has become a day for picnics, barbecues, and sports.
In many states, it's the first long weekend and day off from school for those states that start the school year early in August. For other states, it's the official end of summer with school starting the next day.
