    1. 2 more hours of this Labor Day picnic: free hot dogs, chips, eegees in several flavors, water. We visited most of the Dem and labor booths, then ate the food. Later there were games: hula hoops, bag race, tug of war (adults or kids), peanut in the pie (for kids only) and hot dog eating contest (adults only, thankfully). Hot day at the park.
