You’ve been working hard all year and now it’s time to loosen up a bit. You deserve an amazing Labor Day weekend and the Music City is exactly where you need to be. For all your hard work, treat yourself to our car service in Nashville for all your transportation and navigation needs; let us do the driving, you just take care about having a good time. Take a look at some of the activities that you can engage during this Labor Day in Nashville.

Excursion Trains (A Day Out with Thomas)

This one is for the kids. Do you remember Thomas the Tank? If you do, head down to the Tennessee Central Railway’s Museum where you and your family will meet a real-life talking Thomas. Get to meet Sir Topham Hatt who controls the railway and enjoy a 30-minute train ride along Cumberland River all the way to downtown Nashville. Other attractions on-site include bouncing houses, a petting zoo, a rubber tire train ride, a mini golf course, and much more.

You can enjoy a day out with Thomas on 2nd and 3rd September and if you feel like, you can also come back on the 9th and 10th. Due to high activity over the Labor Day weekend, we suggest that you plan to get there at least an hour before your scheduled departure.

Now, this is one area our limo service in Nashville can really help you out on. We have a reputation for punctuality, so you and your family can simply relax, leave all transportation concerns to us, and rest assured that you’ll be there on time.

Cavalia Odysseo

Prepare to be dazzled by the largest touring production on the planet. The Cavalia Odysseo features 65 majestic horses of 12 distinctive breeds, 50 seasoned riders, musicians, dancers, and acrobats, all under one roof. The $30 million spectacle is a true revolution of live entertainment and an epic journey through some of nature’s greatest wonders.

Performing artists at the show will hail from all over the world. Represented countries will include the United States, France, South Africa, Canada, Russia, Brazil, Ukraine, Italy, Guinea, Spain, and Poland. The extravaganza will kick off on 30th August under the Big White Top near Opryland by Briley Parkway. The show ends as late as September 10th, so you still have time to get those tickets.

Fireworks at Percy Priest Lake

Visit Nashville Shores for a spectacular fireworks display. Nashville Shores is a water adventure park and camping ground on Percy Priest Lake. If you think about it, the Fireworks show at the Percy Priest Lake shore is a two-in-one package; there are the actual fireworks and then there are the beautiful reflections on the lake. Amazing right?

You can choose to get a season pass or only that day’s waterpark admission. The Labor Day fireworks show goes down on Sunday 3rd September from 8:30 pm right after the park’s official closing hours.

Church Street Block Party

The Church Street Block Party is a one-day affair happening on 3rd September on Church Street between 15th and 16th Avenue. The Block Party is a music festival meant to recognize and celebrate Nashville’s diversity and will feature a star-studded lineup of musicians. Other shows to keep you engaged will include light performances and aerial acrobatics performances. Food and drinks will also be in plenty with some of the city’s favorite food trucks, breweries, and wineries at your service throughout the evening.
