Rushford’s Labor Day Weekend – 2019

August 9, 2019

Anyone who has grown up in Allegany County knows that with the end of August Rushford’s Labor Day Weekend activities are just ahead. It is one of the longest standing traditional must-dos we have all come to love and enjoy. While it signals the end of summer vacations for most of us, it also makes way for the new school year. It is time for all of us to get back to work, time to butter up and hone our skills of employment, and time for students to pick up notebooks, pens, and supplies for school.

Rushford’s three-day Labor Day weekend celebration has plenty of things to see and do. You can meet the everyday heroes of those who fly life-saving Mercy Flights, and Rushford EMT and Fire Department Members.



You can watch the little tykes come out to show their driving skills in the Demolition Derby Power Wheels Division competition and the adult demolition derby of course gives lots of entertainment!



Rushford Central School’s Alumni Picnic is always a popular event where former students and graduates meet up to share stories about the memories of their youth. Special years may be highlighted, but many members of other classes are represented too. You’ll never know who you will find at the picnic!

There are a couple of chances to have a great chicken barbecue while in town, and there are many food vendors in Legion Park along with assorted vendors of crafts and hard-to-find one-of-a-kind items to purchase.



The highlights of the weekend include the grand parade on Monday where you will never know exactly what will be in the lineup. Each year is a different theme, so it is always fresh. Of course, the evening entertainments and the culmination of the firework shows are always welcomed by everyone.

Yes, Rushford is the place to be to celebrate Labor Day, and you will find something to interest every member of your group. Come on out for a great time!!
