Staying in the city this Labor Day? Don't fret, you won't be bored.

From the West Indian Day Parade in Crown Heights to an art festival in Washington Square Park, there are plenty of ways to bid adieu to the summer right here.

Top off brunch with an all-day happy hour (Sept. 4)

Burke & Willis Australian Bistro executive chef Rodrigo
Burke & Willis Australian Bistro executive chef Rodrigo Nogueria has a cure for your Labor Day weekend hangover: The Kangaroo Pie Floater. The kangaroo meat pie and pea soup mixture is said to be a traditional hangover go-to in Australia. If that's a bit too daring for your taste buds, you can stick with the Avocado Smash, avocado on toast with tomato, onion and feta, or the Swagman's Breakfast, two eggs, steak, pork, roasted mushrooms and potatoes. After you fill up on brunch, being served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., stick around for the all-day happy hour, which kicks off at noon and includes two-for-one drink deals. 226 W. 79th St., burkeandwillisny.com (Credit: Burke & Willis Australian Bistro)

Watch the West Indian Day Parade (Sept. 4)

One of the city's most popular Labor Day
One of the city's most popular Labor Day events, the West Indian Day Parade runs on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn from Schenectady Avenue to Grand Army Plaza. Featuring costume bands, masqueraders, floats, Caribbean cuisine and more, the seven-hour event always draws crowds. The parade will be held right after the J'ouvert festival at 11 a.m. and wrap up around 6 p.m. For more information, go to wiadcacarnival.org/events. (Credit: Charles Eckert)

Cheer on top tennis stars at the U.S. Open (through Sept. 10)

Yes, you'll get to see tennis pros in
Yes, you'll get to see tennis pros in action, but there's also a good chance you'll spot some celebs in the stands, too. So far this Open, Luke Bryan, Victoria Beckham and Alec Baldwin, among others, have been spotted cheering on their favorite players at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, Queens. The official U.S. Open box office is sold out of day session tickets from Friday, Sept. 1 through Saturday, Sept. 9, but resale passes start at $150 on Ticketmaster. You'll still be able to purchase evening tickets at usopen.org, but you'll have to forfeit the potential suntan. (Credit: Getty Images / Henny Ray Abrams)
