Labor Day in Coral Bay is a local affair, not only celebrating everyone’s hard work, but rejoicing in how far those efforts have taken us.
History of Labor Day
Created by the labor movement and dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers, Labor Day is a tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the United States.
The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City on September 5, 1882 and organized by the Central Labor Union. Twelve years later, the first Monday in September was proposed as a holiday, as the Central Labor Union urged organizations in other cities across the country to celebrate the working man’s day of celebration with a street parade to exhibit the strength and spirit of trade and labor organizations, and a party for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families.
