The 45th Annual Logan Labor Day Celebration at the Logan Golf Course located 1.25 miles east of Logan, Kansas on HWY 9, will be held on SUNDAY, September 3, 2023. The Hansen Museum with funds from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation sponsors this annual family-friendly event. There is no admission fee.

The day kicks off at 11:00 a.m. with a sand volleyball tournament and the Dane G. Bales Jr. Memorial Car Show.  The car show has been a highlight of the Labor Day Celebration since 1998. This year’s featured car is Gary McClanahan’s 1947 Plymouth.  Make sure to get there before 4:00 p.m. to check out everything from classic coupes and beefed-up muscle cars to antique pick-up trucks and flashy hot rods.

Get some exercise, see the sights, or win a prize at this year’s festivities. Let the kids run loose and find entertainment that will burn off some energy by jumping in the bouncy house or impressing their friends with awesome tricks on the bungee trampoline. Ready to see the sights from higher up? Check out the popular 25-foot rock climbing wall that will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Feeling competitive enough to try for a prize? The Siruta Pedal Pullers State Sanctioned Kid’s Tractor Pull begins at 2:00 p.m. and winners are eligible to compete in the State Pull at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson.

In-between activities, you’ll find plenty of delicious options for both lunch and supper, (plus snacking in-between), at the Logan Chamber of Commerce Food Booth, The Corn Kettle, and Buck’s Snow Shack.

Take a ride into Logan and visit the recently renovated Hansen Museum from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. On view in the Museum is the amazing work of artist Sean Kenney. Take a break from the outdoors and step inside the pages of a real-world super hero story at the Animal Super Powers exhibition.  Featuring sculptures made with LEGO® bricks, you’ll want to run, fly, swim, or leap car shows & volleyball tournaments to get inside to see Sean Kenney’s Animal Super Powers.

The 45th Annual Logan Labor Day Celebration’s musical entertainment will start at 6:00 p.m. with Colorado Keys, a mobile dueling piano show out of Denver, CO.   Pianists Jon and Amy Tuck will provide interactive, lively entertainment. Come ready to request songs!  Once the party starts, they encourage crowd participation.  Be ready for anything—a kick-line to Frank Sinatra, an audience singing battle to Sweet Caroline, or a dance-off to Justin Timberlake, anything can happen with Colorado Keys!

Last, but certainly not least, the grand finale by Rainbow Fireworks of Inman, Kansas, will light up the sky with a brilliant display of fireworks that can be seen for miles. All this and more happens at the 45th ANNUAL LOGAN LABOR DAY CELEBRATION, at the Logan Golf Course located 1.25 miles east of Logan, Kansas, on SUNDAY, September 3, 2023.
