Is summer really nearing an end? Some see Labor Day Weekend as the unofficial beginning of the fall season and the last hoorah of summer. No matter how you see it, you can make the most out of your Labor Day weekend.

  • Meander through the trails at Santa’s Stables via horseback. Take in the countryside views just outside of Santa Claus and appreciate the quiet and quaint atmosphere.  
  • Visit the Living Historical Farm inside Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial to see how activities and chores were completed during the time the Lincoln family lived in Indiana.  
  • Spend the afternoon inside Lincoln State Park. Relax on the beach at Lake Lincoln, hop on a paddle boat to explore the lake and enjoy its views, and wander through the park’s nature center to learn about local wildlife.  
  • End your day at the majestic Lincoln Amphitheatre, listening to the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra perform songs of Indiana Legends.  Sway to tunes from Hoagy Carmichael, Michael Jackson, Cole Porter, John Mellencamp, and more.

  • It’s never too early to start Christmas shopping! Browse items at the Santa Claus Christmas Store, Santa’s TOYS, Evergreen Boutique & Christmas Shop, and more. From unique gift items to specialty souvenirs, find something for everyone on your list.  
  • Swing by the Santa Claus Museum & Village to learn about the history of the town through exhibits. And don’t forget to write a letter to Santa; he’ll reply in December!  
  • It’s a holiday weekend, right? Skip the traditional lunch and opt for a frozen hot chocolate, handmade goodies, and old-fashioned treats from Santa’s Candy Castle.  
  • Head down to Lincoln Pioneer Village & Museum to explore hundreds of local artifacts and 13 Lincoln-era replica cabins. Then, walk across the park to the Blues on the Rock festival. This family-friendly event features live music, a beer and wine garden, and fun for the whole family.
