  1. The Big Muddy used to last through Labor Day, did it not? We were REALLY looking forward to going tomorrow on Labor Day. Very sad to learn that it is over 😦 Perhaps next year Labor Day can be included?

  2. At least for the past 6 years Big Muddy has only ever been on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend.
