Coming off the hottest August on record since 1874, a much more cool and pleasant Labor Day weekend swept through the city this weekend. From a majestic sunset on Friday night, to the Made in America Festival on the Parkway on Saturday and Sunday, to perfect weather on the holiday, it was a weekend to remember. The following are some Labor Day weekend scenes from around the city.
