It wouldn’t be Labor Day without a picnic and members of the Duluth Central Labor Body welcomed the community to Bayfront Festival Park Monday for the return of their annual Labor Day picnic.

"It’s such a sense of community today. I’m seeing lots of smiling faces and just really, really thankful for a beautiful day,” Beth McCuskey, president of the organization said.

Senator Tina Smith was among the politicians who spoke at the event about the significance of Labor Day and what it means for workers.

This comes as the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the Democrats’ budget bill are moving through Congress. She hopes to see them pass.

“Especially as I think about the work we still have to do as we head back to Washington next week and passing all these big bills that could have the potential to make a huge difference for working families in the North Country,” Smith said.

The picnic went from 1:00-4:00pm.

The Central Labor Body hopes to continue the tradition again next year.
