The new school year takes a break for the Labor Day weekend.

(1) Grand Haven Labor Day Bridge Walk — 9 a.m. Monday. This is the 10th year for Grand Haven’s answer to the Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Walk. It will begin from the north end of the Third Street Bridge, taking participants along the boardwalk to the south pier, then loop back to the Chinook Pier for refreshments and a raffle. The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports and the Michigan Fitness Foundation recently endorsed the walk as a quality physical activity event.

(2) Dinner & Movie Night — 6 p.m. Friday at The Momentum Center for Social Engagement, 714 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven. Enjoy a potluck dinner (bring something!) before the movie, “Recovery Boys.” It’s free to the community.

(3) Musical Fountain — 9:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Lynne Sherwood Waterfront Stadium, Grand Haven. Haven’t seen the show lately? It goes to a weekend-only schedule after Monday, through the end of September.

(4) Grand Haven Farmers Market — 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday under the green canopy at Chinook Pier, 301 N. Harbor Ave. Catch some garden-fresh seasonal produce, flowers, plants, baked goods and more. Sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce.

(5) Hope-Holland Community Day Picnic — 4:30-6:30 p.m. Friday at Buys Athletic Field, 301 Fairbanks Ave., Holland. Everyone is invited to enjoy the picnic and entertainment put on by the college. The cost is $10; $6 for ages 5-11 (includes admission to Windmill Island and the Hope football season opener at 7 p.m. Friday). The picnic includes pork carnitas, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tamales, vegetarian enchiladas and black bean burgers. Music by the Holland American Legion Band.
