Happy Labor Day!

For museum entertainment: The National Constitution Center on Independence Mall is open today from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and they’re giving visitors a peek back into the past by letting families try on Revolutionary War-era clothing and teaching through stories about Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and more.

For more: Head over to Logan Square where the Franklin Institute prepares to say goodbye to one of their exhibits “Circus! Science Under the Big Top.” Don’t say you missed it — get there between 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.

For top of the line exhibiting: You look like you need a new piece of art for the living room. The Delaware Valley Art League presents their annual juried show and sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at Swope Music Hall, on campus at West Chester University. That should do the trick.

For a fair finale: Get to the Allentown Fairgrounds for the final day of the Allentown Fair for your traditional fair rides, games, food, 4-H judging and music from noon until 10 p.m.

For a Labor Day concert: Honor the holiday that may or may not have given you the day off with a concert at Veteran’s Square Park in Yardley, Pa. at 3:30 p.m. featuring the Pennsbury Community Band. There’ll also be food, so it’s bound to be a good time.
