3 To Do: Labor Day weekend events

Marco Eagle

1. Saturday and Sunday: Hometown Festival at Bass Pro Shop

Bass Pro Shops, 10040 Gulf Center Drive, Fort Myers, will host a two-day Labor Day festival this weekend.

The Hometown Festival will offer face painting, an archery challenge, duck pond, bait toss, free hot dogs and workshops for adults.

In this Sept. 19, 2017 photo, the Bass Pro Shops logo is seen at the entrance to a store in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Bass Pro Shops' roughly $4 billion acquisition of rival outdoor retailer Cabela's is complete, but the small western Nebraska town that has been home to Cabela's is still wondering about its future. The closing announcement made Monday, Sept. 25, didn't address how many of the roughly 2,000 Cabela's jobs will remain in Sidney, Neb.

The activities last from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. It’s free to attend.

Call 239-461-7800 for more information.
