>The first Monday in September (this year September 6) marks Labor Day, a national holiday dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. We also mark that day as the unofficial end of summer.
Around the world, labor day is traditionally celebrated on May 1 and is also known as May Day and is characterized by dancing around the maypole and other ancient customs associated with the celebration of spring.
One event happening on Saturday, September 4 in Philadelphia is the Red Bull Flugtag. At 1 p.m. 34 teams will show and test their homemade flying machines by soaring off a 30-foot high flight deck. This is the first time that Flugtag (= “flight/ flying day”in German) will be in Philadelphia and it will be interesting to see the designs dedicated to human-powered flight.

1 Cooper St, Camden, NJ
Gates open at 11 a.m. and the first flight is at 1 p.m.
Most of all this event is FREE and vendors will be on sight selling food and beverages, including beer.
