ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A Labor Day cookout and play day will be held in Albany Monday to celebrate working men and women.

The event, From Your backyard to Ours, will be held at the Riverfront Amphitheater.

State Rep. Winfred Dukes is one of the sponsors.  He says instead of cooking out at home, take your grill downtown and be entertained with music.

There will be bouncy houses and a clown for the kids.  Mostly, the day will be about celebrating men and women laborers at a time when unemployment is still a major problem in the state and around the country.

Dukes said, "We're hosting this celebration to recognize the contribution that working men and women have made towards the economy development, economic advancement and the secrets of our community, our state and our nation."

The Labor Day celebration is free and will take place at Riverfront Amphitheater from ten to six.
