Labor Day falls on Monday, September 1st, 2014, giving many a chance to catch up on family/alone time.  What to do with a nice day off...be bored?  Nah, there's plenty to do in Amarillo on Labor Day!

If you're looking for fun activities you can take the family and friends out for, from hitting the Frisbee Golf course at Thompson Park, to Sports World, you can definitely find something fun to fill time with.

Wonderland Park

2601 Dumas Dr, Amarillo, TX 79107
(806) 383-3344

Wonderland will have the gates open on Labor Day this year from 1p-6p.  Get wet, get dizzy, get the WOW factor!  The world of Wonderland will be awaiting you this Labor Day, with all your favorite rides like the Texas Tornado, Shoot The Shoot, Drop of Fear and all the rest.

Sports World

9400 Canyon Dr, Amarillo, TX 79119
(806) 331-7223

Sports World opens the gates at 12n on Labor Day, where the fun can begin and never end!  From 18 holes of adventure golf, mile long go‐kart track and kiddie track, batting cages and arcade room.

If you just gotta get your shopping fix in, you won't be let down...

WestGate Mall

7701 W Interstate 40, Amarillo, TX 79121
(806) 358-7221

Yes, you can shop till you drop this Labor Day at WestGate Mall.  Look for the mall to be open regular hours, 10a - 9pm, this Labor Day.  And more than likely, look for massive Labor Day sales, because you gotta spend your money on something.

More Great Stores For Shopping

It looks like the vast majority of retail stores will be open this Labor Day.  I've confirmed that Best Buy, Target, Bed-Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Ross, Kohl's, Burlington, and pretty much all the stores around the mall or in the Shops At Soncy will be open.

Convenience Stores

I don't think they ever close, do they?  If they're open on Christmas, I don't see them closing on Labor Day...  I've confirmed that all area Pak-A-Sak stores will be open, as well as Toot N Totum stores.

 

Gyms

It looks like both locations of Gold's Gym will be closed on Labor Day, but Planet Fitness will be open all day, and I do mean all day!

You have other options like area lakes and parks.  They'll probably pretty packed, so you should get there early for a good spot, but if you're trying to avoid the crowd you might avoid them.

Here is a list of places that will be closed on Labor Day.

All Banks & Credit Unions Will Be Closed

Courthouses and public government offices will be closed.

The Social Security Office will be closed.

The Amarillo post offices will be closed.

The Amarillo Public Libraries will be closed.

Have a fantastic Labor Day and enjoy your time off from work...or make the most out of your time at work if you don't get the day off.  What do they say...when life gives you lemons, add Vodka and orange juice?

Whatever you do, wherever you go, make sure you take 96.9 KISS-FM with you :)
