Longwood Gardens

How will you bid farewell to summer? Here are 5 ideas for celebrating Labor Day weekend locally.

► Kids can share their favorite stories of summer at an open mic at The Creative Living Room in Swarthmore, PA on Friday night.

► The last of the 2011 Fireworks & Fountains shows at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA is set for Saturday, Sept. 3.

► Camden County (NJ) hosts its annual Backyard BBQ with food and concerts on the waterfront, Sunday, Sept. 4.

► Families can picnic with Sesame Street characters and see a nighttime fireworks display at Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA on Sunday, Sept. 4.

► This weekend is the last chance to see the George Washington exhibit and to take advantage of the Kids Free Summer promotion (free admission for kids ages 12 & younger) at the National Constitution Center in Phila.
