MENDOCINO Co., 8/24/19 — Labor Day is always a good time to get out and enjoy the warm weather before fall’s responsibilities kick in, and there’s no shortage of events happening this year, including the 20th anniversary of Point Arena’s Harbor & Seafood Festival. The free event takes place on Sunday, September 1, and includes local marine delicacies, music, and local brews, with proceedings going towards operating Point Arena’s public pier.
The cash-only event takes place from noon until 6 p.m., and while kids are welcome, dogs should stay home. If you’re looking to make a weekend out of it, you can also check out Paul Bunyan Days in Fort Bragg, with events going on throughout Labor Day weekend.
