What to Do on Labor Day Weekend in Long Beach, NY

Your last chance to enjoy a summer beach getaway is just around the corner – and there’s no better time to book than now! Allegria Hotel is offering great summer deals and offers that are too good to miss. What’s more, Long Beach is still alive with summer vibes. Check out what’s happening on Labor Day Weekend in the City by the Sea. 

McAvoy Labor Day Run

For 30 years, Labor Day in Long Beach signifies the commemorative five-mile race on the boardwalk with the start and finish at Laurelton Boulevard. This is a great opportunity to squeeze in a few extra miles to your training plan. Or it could be your chance to get past the 5K mark. Wherever you are, the race has been around for almost three decades for a reason: it’s a scenic flat and fast course with PB potential. Click here to register.

But what about food? After all, you’ll need something to recover from the 5-mile race and a good meal to fuel you before the movie night. We recommend taking a tour of Long Beach’s best seafood restaurants. If you’re staying at the Allegria Hotel, why not start with dinner at Atlantica Restaurant?

Fire Island and Jones Beach, NY

To avoid packed roads during Labor Day weekend, we advise you not to venture too far from Long Beach. Luckily, Fire Island and Jones Beach are just a short drive from the Allegria Hotel.

Jones Beach concerts are still going strong Labor Day Weekend. Catch Brad Paisely and Chris Lane Aug. 30, or Breaking Benjamin Aug. 31.

If head-banging has never been your thing or if you’re traveling with your family, pay a visit to Fire Island instead because Labor Day weekend will be a busy time! The Patchogue Ferry Terminal is hosting the last Coastal Connections: Artist-in-Residence Exhibition. This event features six artists who created artwork inspired by Fire Island’s nature, communities and heritage. For some family fun, participate in the Annual Sand Creation Contest, a beloved Labor Day local tradition! It begins at 11am with awards at 2pm. Read more.
