Labor Day weekend has for many years been a chance for the "silver town with a golden heart" to celebrate with family and friends. The town comes alive with music, antique sellers and plenty of fun for kids.

"It's one of our biggest events of the year, a good time for the whole family," Mayor Chris Koch said. "I always like seeing the classic cars and vintage tractors. The kid floats are also really fun."

Stefany Mahoney, a member of the Labor Day Committee, said the shootout gang and two bands had to be cancelled due to a lack of funding, but that a kids carnival is planned for Sunday and Monday.

The usual basketball tournament will not take place this year, but on Monday, Labor Day, a 5-kilomter fun run will be held to raise money for the Bellevue Fire Department.
