Labor Day 2018
Things to Do in LA This Labor Day Weekend
It’s officially the end of summer, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the end of fun! For those of us sticking in LA for the weekend, here are some events you won’t want to miss! Cheers to the new season!
JURASSIC PARK® – THE RIDE GOES EXTINCT
Labor Day Weekend is your last chance to experience Jurassic Park® – The Ride before it goes extinct on Monday, Sept. 3! The ride is making way for an all-new Jurassic World attraction that’s opening at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2019. Originally opened in June 1996, the thrilling river raft adventure is based on Jurassic Park, the blockbuster 1993 Steven Spielberg movie and 1990 novel by Michael Crichton. After encountering dinosaurs in their natural habitat, guests escape a life-sized T-rex when their raft plunges to safety – at the time, the 84-foot drop was the largest theme park water descent ever built.
Now – September 3rd | Universal Studios
LA FLEET WEEK

Free to the public, the event features public ship tours, military displays and equipment demonstrations, live entertainment, a kids’ STEM Expo, aircraft flyovers, a 100 Years of Navy in Hollywood Film Festival, the 10th Annual Conquer the Bridge, LA Fleet Week 5 on 5 Basketball Tournament, and a Galley Wars culinary competition between Sailor, Marine & Coast Guard teams.
