Labor Day Weekend is here! The unofficial end of summer falls on September 3rd this year, so break out your white pants and BBQ grill for one last hurrah over the long weekend. Whether you want to squeeze in one more backyard BBQ, road trip to the beach, or family camping trip, Aosom has got the gear you need to make the most out of your summer fling.
The three-day weekend is beloved by all, but have you ever wondered why we celebrate Labor Day? We can thank the Labor and Trade Unions for our last long weekend of the summer. First recognized as an official federal holiday in 1894, Americans celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in September every year to honor the achievements and contributions of American workers. Labor Day is a celebration of the strength, prosperity, and well-being of America and her workforce. It’s a time for family and friends to come together and celebrate the end of summer with picnics, camping trips, and outdoor activities before school starts back up and the weather starts to turn cold. In other words, it’s time to party!
Send Summer Off in Style
Gearing up for one last backyard shindig before fall arrives? Make sure you’ve got enough seating to go around with one of our super durable and stylish wicker rattan patio furniture sets. For intimate gatherings in smaller spaces, check out our stylish 3-piece nesting set; these chairs and table stack up easily for off season storage. If you’ve got a horde of family and friends to accommodate, go big with our luxurious 13-piece sectional rattan set, which seats at least 10. This outdoor furniture set is perfect for large family get togethers and lazy afternoons on the patio or poolside. Your backyard is sure to be a hit for years to come- good luck getting anyone else to host after they see your sweet setup!
Fall might be just around the corner, but you can keep your patio season going well into the autumn months with a wall mounted heating unit from Outsunny. These remote-control heaters attach easily to an outside wall, keeping your patio cozy even as the evenings start to get chilly. These powerful little heaters are quick and easy to install and provide warmth and ambient light to your outdoor spaces. Here in Oregon, it’s already cooling down as the summer comes to an end, but with this heater we can keep our Labor Day celebrations going even after the sun goes down.
Is your backyard looking a little plain? Add some functional structure to your outdoor space with a gazebo. Our steel framed gazebos are both elegant and durable, and are sure to be a hit with your friends and neighbors. Removable side curtains mean that you can let as much light in as you want, or keep as much rain and wind out as you need. Never have your garden parties ruined by inclement weather again with a steel framed hard top gazebo from Outsunny. Just don’t be surprised if you find your backyard becoming a popular party venue!
Get Out and Go This Labor Day Weekend
If you’re trying to get out of town for the long holiday weekend, you’re not alone. This is one of the most popular camping and travelling weekends of the year. Whether you’re heading to the beach or the lake for a day on the water, make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment to make the most of it. We carry lots of great coolers to keep your snacks fresh and your drinks cold, including soft sided coolers that are perfect for quick trips. Our tote bag coolers are lightweight and easy to carry, yet still big enough to hold a six pack and a couple hoagies from the gas station- the official day trip food of Oregonians.
Going fishing for the day, or just planning to kick it on the beach for a couple hours? You’ll need a great chair to relax in. Our folding backpack beach chair is perfect for casual lounging in the sand or in the mountains. This sturdy chair has a neck rest, storage pouch, and cup holder, as well as backpack straps which make it super easy to carry to your favorite fishing hole or view point. The backpack feature keeps your hands free for more important things, like coolers and your dog’s leash.
Speaking of your four-legged friends, we’ve got great products to make their final summer excursion great too! If you’re tired of muddy paw prints in your tent at night, get your dog his own mini tent from PawHut! This waterproof tent is lightweight and easy to set up and break down. Our pet tents are a great option for camping or backpacking trips, and can also be used in the backyard or at the park to give your dog a secure place to nap outdoors. Your furry friend will love having his own space, and you’ll love how clean your own tent will stay without Fido tracking in half the forest.
Stay Active as Summer Ends
Labor Day signals back to school time, as well as the annual return of major sports programs like the NCAA and the NFL. Spend the long weekend working on your jump shot with an adjustable basketball hoop from Soozier. The powder coated steel frame with acrylic backboard will hold up for years to come, so you can play plenty of games of horse, one on one, or just practice your layups and rebounds. Keep the kids entertained for hours and be the coolest house in the neighborhood with this portable hoop that adjusts from 6’ 8 to 8’ 2 to accommodate players of every size. Shooting hoops is sure to be fun for the whole family, and is a great way to stay active outdoors even as the weather starts to cool down.
