Need a Labor Day Weekend Plan? Check Out the Sausalito Arts Festival

Every week, we'll be featuring a guest post from the travel writers behind Worth the Drive, a blog featuring nearby getaways, festivals, and sweet travel deals on NBC Bay Area.

A free tip? If you're considering organizing a really large art festival, the time to do it is summer. And if you're considering what part of summer, the time to do it is Labor Day Weekend. After all, you'll want three long days to spread out in, and while Memorial Day Weekend and sometimes Fourth of July are candidates, people are often off to the beaches and barbecues when summer kicks off, and off to the parades and fireworks for Independence Day. So Labor Day Weekend is ideal; people want to get their last blast of summer on, they're thinking ahead to the holidays and gifts, and the weather is still fine. Oh, and one last tip, future festival planners? Pick a spot as beautiful as Sausalito. Wait. Sausalito on Labor Day Weekend already hosts an art festival, and it has for 60 years. Well then. Best talk about that.
