In Northfield, Labor Day is a day the whole community looks forward to.
"It's a tradition. It's been going on so many years and everybody loves it," said Dex Rowe a Northfield Observances Board Member.
The 36th Annual Celebration is bringing community members and local organizations together. The booster club has been raising money at the event for more than 20 years. "Each year we give out scholarships to seniors at Northfield High School and if not for Labor Day, we wouldn't be able to do that, so it's big for us," said Shannon Doney, a local volunteer.
Other organizations, like the Cub Scouts, also depend on the weekend of events to help support their cause. "It's just to raise awareness for the Scouts, to try to get more participation in Northfield from the kids and the parents," said Phil Tenney, an Assistant Den Leader.
Visitors also enjoyed everything from live music to circus acts. "They have a juggler and an MC who's just a riot and it's a little bit of everything. A taste of everything that you may see at a circus, and they put it all into an hour and a half," Rowe said.
And although the parade is yet to come, it's something the locals look forward to. "We make it a point to come down to the festivities every year and we always go to the parade, it's a really good event," Tenney said.
And if you're out here before the marching begins for the parade on Labor Day. "Wander up the hill a little bit. The Masonic Hall has great breakfast tomorrow," Rowe said.
The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. in downtown Northfield.
