Labor Day is always the first Monday in September. It was original a tribute to labor unions but now it's just a four-day weekend.
Despite the hot temperatures in DFW in the beginning of September, you can just feel the change in the air. You know that fall is coming -- even though temps may still be near triple digits. There are a lot of fun activities to enjoy with friends or the family. Don't miss the last big holiday before it's time to put the pumpkins on the porch.
Labor Day weekend is also the start of dove hunting season in Texas. Be sure to get your hunting license.
Grab your guns because dove hunting season is finally here.
