Springfield, Missouri –-( Labor Day Weekend typically signals the last hurrah of summer as families finish vacations and kids get ready to head back to school.

It’s also a great time to recognize the everyday heroes around us, the achievements of those in the workplace and our military personnel.

That’s why Bass Pro Shops retail locations** across the U.S. will host the Honoring Our Heroes Event during Labor Day weekend September 3rd –4th and again September 10th –11th.

Bass Pro Shops retail locations will offer free family activities from 1-5pm each of those days and free crafts from 2-4pm (while supplies last) Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and 4th and again Saturday and Sunday, September 10th and 11th and it’s all free!

You can also help show your appreciation for our troops, most of whom won’t be able to get home for the holiday, by bringing in new or gently used DVDs, video games or books. All donated items will be sent to our troops through the AMVETS organization. The first 50 people at each store to donate, beginning at 10am each day, will receive a Sportsman’s Racing Team poster.

Kids can challenge mom or dad to a radio remote control car race Saturdays and Sundays or take part in any of the other free activities such as the bean bag toss or tire roll. If you complete all three activities you will receive a free stars and stripes band (while supplies last.) (Check out for complete Honoring Our Heroes Event weekend activities for your local store)

Other fun activities offered from 2-4pm each Saturday and Sunday of the event include a patriotic bug or sun visor craft (while supplies last). Plus you won’t want to miss the Dutch oven apple pie cooking demonstrations and FREE samples Saturdays, September 3rd and 10th.
