The Labour Day Festival in Bell Park starts at 10 a.m. 

Th event takes place at Bell Park until 4 p.m. Admission is free.

The Sudbury and District Labour Council (SDLC) and affiliates welcome all Sudburians to celebrate and mark the unofficial end of summer, 

With live music, bouncy castles and food stands, there is something for everyone, said the press release.
 
“2018 has been an exciting year full of change and challenge for the Sudbury and District Labour Council,” said the organization in the press release. “Our president, Jamie West, was elected to the Ontario Provincial Assembly as the new NDP MPP for Sudbury. We are proud of Jamie and we know his passion for working people will be critical as they face the government of Doug Ford.

“With a majority Conservative government in the legislature destroying progressive programs like the Ontario Basic Income Pilot, stripping the health education curriculum, and trying to buy Ontarians off with $1 beer, we at the Labour Council need to be prepared for a difficult four years as our affiliates fight against increasing pressure.

“We are coming together on Labour Day in solidarity to support working families and programs like Pharmacare, and guaranteed income. Join us in celebrating the role that Sudbury workers have in maintaining a strong and healthy community.”
