Labor Day Weekend kicks off today, the holiday that has come to signify the coming of the last days of summer. Many folks will be soaking up the final moments of sun by visiting the Minnesota State Fair, grilling in the backyard with friends, drinking beer on a porch, or hitting the road. In between low-key activities, there's still some fun stuff to do around the Twin Cities for free. And while things aren't as busy as usual, folks looking for some music both indoors and outdoors, or those seeking some fun family activities should be able to find some things of interest.
