The annual Labour Day Concert is a great occasion to enjoy the warm end of summer at night in Washington. Pack some food and head to a picnic on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol on the last Sunday before Labour Day on September 3rd.
Classic music fans will be delighted to listen to the National Symphony Orchestra free of charge. Some may even manage to hear it twice—during the rehearsal that starts at 3p.m. and the actual concert that starts at 8 p.m.
