What are your plans for Labor Day? Are you headed off on an adventure in the mountains or at the lake? Or are you squeezing in one last cookout before the weather chills and the leaves start changing? If you plan to stick around the Wichita area for the long weekend, there are a few fun things to make the best of your extra time away from the office.
Kick off your weekend on Friday night and channel your inner beast at the Intrust Bank Arena. Beginning at 7:30 PM you have the chance to see WWE RAW Superstars Live! Grab a ticket from $20-$100 and enjoy the show!
Enjoy an evening of the classic music brought to us by the British Invasion. Across the Pond will be putting on shows at the Kansas Star Casino from Friday through Sunday, complete with your favorite songs from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, and more! This show is 21 or older, so schedule a sitter and head to Mulvane for an exciting evening.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly outing, make sure you find some time to hit the Hall of Heroes at Exploration Place. This travelling exhibit came to the area in May and will stick around until January, so there are plenty of chances to check it out. Test your super abilities with trials for jumps, speed, and more! Or just step behind the scenes of your favorite superhero movies and check out props, costumes, and memorabilia. Included with general admission, this exhibit is sure to add to a thrilling day.
If you prefer a more low-key weekend of food and sunshine, try out a few end-of-summer bash recipes to ensure you close out the season with a bang!
Have you ever tried a Beer Can Burger? That’s right. Shape your burger around a beer can and stuff it with the fixin’s: cheese, jalapeno, peppers, onions— whatever your heart desires! You can never go wrong with a burger on the barbecue, but you can sure step up your came with this delectable idea.
Are you feeling adventurous? How about a Pickle Dog? Cheddar and cream cheese are the opening act, but the real star of the show is the “bun.” Exchange that old-school bread bun for a pickle and enjoy this twist on a summer classic.
After you’ve had your fill of main courses, don’t forget to indulge in a little bit of dessert. Stick to the barbecuing theme but skip the barbecue with Banana Split Kebabs. These amazing concoctions of fruit, nuts, and chocolate are perfect for a warm day when you don’t want to worry about your ice cream or popsicles melting!
Are you in need of even more options? Pop over to the Delish website and fall down the rabbit hole of unique recipes and creative menus!
Now that you have a few ideas for that last hoorah before saying farewell to the sunshine, make sure you get a few last wears out of your whites and those floppy poolside hats and have a fun and relaxing Labor Day!
