Labor Day Weekend is traditionally considered the end of summer, but the fun doesn’t end in Laughlin. The weekend should be filled with splashing under the sun, exploring the outdoors, and reveling in some entertainment. Laughlin has all of that (and then some), providing sun and fun seekers a summer respite. Here are some events in Laughlin, Nevada, that should be on your itinerary over the holiday weekend!


Stroll the Laughlin River Walk

The mighty Colorado River stores some sensational sights to see, all of which can be viewed from the Laughlin River Walk. Lining the azure blue stream, this attraction allows visitors to view the natural beauty of Southern Nevada — all while taking in Laughlin at night, when the lights really dazzle. Stretching from Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort to the Laughlin River Lodge, this is a fantastic way to take in the destination.

Tour the Colorado River

A getaway to the destination wouldn’t be complete without some time on the river — and Labor Day Weekend is no exception. Whether you want to enjoy the view on a river cruise or enjoy the surroundings in your own watercraft, there’s an experience for everyone. Laughlin River Jet Ski Rentals offers exhilarating rides on its lineup of vessels, while Desert River Outfitters takes a slower approach offering kayaks to paddle your way along the stream. There’s also a steamboat experience aboard the Celebration, which offers a dinner cruise and a daytime cruise (complete with historical narration). Tickets can be purchased at the Aquarius Casino Resort.

Ann Wilson of the rock band Heart will take the mic at E Center at Edgewater Casino Resort, while Mick Adams & The Stones will recreate the genius of The Rolling Stones on stage at Don’s Celebrity Theatre at Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort.
