Welcoming the Long Weekend in Texas Style
Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching, and I am sure many of you are eager to escape the mundane and immerse yourself in some spirited, festive fun. As your friendly neighborhood real estate agent, I not only want to help you find your dream home in Collin County, but also introduce you to the diverse culture and activities our community offers. This Labor Day weekend, our county is bustling with lively events and activities. So, grab your hats and let’s dive in!

Fair and Festivals – Fun for the Whole Family
The Plano Balloon Festival is a Labor Day weekend tradition in Collin County. This event, held at Oak Point Park, includes everything from balloon rides and spectacular evening glows to kid-friendly attractions and delectable food. Not to mention the spectacular firework display that paints the night sky with a rainbow of colors!

Similarly, the Frisco RoughRiders, our beloved baseball team, will be playing at Dr Pepper Ballpark all weekend. It is more than just a game; it is an event complete with themed nights, post-game fireworks, and family-friendly activities!

Local Food and Brews – A Taste of Texas
The McKinney Farmers Market is a must-see for the foodies among us. It is a fantastic way to support our local farmers and artisans, with fresh, locally sourced produce and one-of-a-kind, handcrafted goods. Not to mention it is a great time to stock up on healthy ingredients for your Labor Day barbecue.

Another event not to be missed is the Downtown Plano Art & Wine Walk. It combines the best of local art with delectable wine tastings in a leisurely, self-guided tour of the neighborhood’s most popular restaurants and shops.

Outdoor Adventures – Embrace the Natural Beauty
Collin County is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with a plethora of parks and trails. The Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is a 200-acre nature preserve with hiking and biking trails. If you enjoy water activities, Lewisville Lake is ideal for boating, fishing, or simply relaxing on the shoreline. 

Giving Back to the Community – A Celebration of Labor
In keeping with the Labor Day spirit, there are also opportunities to give back to the community. The Collin County Volunteer Center organizes a variety of Labor Day activities, such as community clean-ups and meal deliveries to those in need. Participating in these efforts is an excellent way to recognize the American workforce’s hard work and resilience.
