Summer is slowly coming to a close and with it we have beautiful memories to last a lifetime! Below are a few ways to spend your Labor Day Weekend like having a picnic in the park, taking a kayak ride and connecting with nature or jumping around at Sky Zone Hamilton. I hope you have a safe and great LDW to close out summer! 

Movie Night: Encanto

When: Saturday, September 3rd at 8 p.m.

Rosedale Park (424 Federal City Rd, Pennington, NJ 08534)

The Mercer County Park Commission presents Encanto as their featured movie this weekend in their movie night series. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with the movie starting approximately at 8 p.m. Parking and admission is free - just make sure to bring lawn chairs and comfy blankets to lay on. Just like the popular song, "We don't talk about Bruno" let's refrain from mentioning that this Summer is close to ending!
