Down at Lorain’s Black River Landing…

…Uncle Sam was off to celebrate with the people…

…at the Lorain County Organized Labor Day Festival.

Overall, it was a typical festival…

…with book and blood mobiles…

…animal presentations (Lorain County Metro Parks)…

…ponies…

…plenty of inflatables…

…(including one with a bull)…

…a music stage…

…some food vendors…

…and an enormous car show.

But there were two things in particular that I thought really made the festival stand out.

The first was the $0.50 hot dogs…

…which you could get with the appropriate food tickets bought here.

The second thing was the presence of the Lorain County Labor Agency

…as well as the Bricklayers Local 5

…the UAW Local 2192…

…and the many other unions and work-related organizations…

…that discussed issues…

…sought those interested in history (Dublin Lock-out)…

…and gave out items that included chip clips, can koozies…

…water bottles…

…and candy galore.

Trick or Treat really came early this year and you should have seen the festival goers lugging stuff to their cars!
