While our sales team at Glenn’s Freedom will be busy with customers taking advantage of our great Labor Day sales, we wanted to share our list of top things to do in Lexington, Kentucky this Labor Day Weekend!


Bluegrass Classic Dog Show – Lexington, KY

Kentucky Football Game – Lexington, KY

That’s right! It’s football season again in the Bluegrass! While Kentucky high school football is already in full swing, the University of Kentucky Wildcats are gearing up for their first game this weekend in Lexington. The Wildcats take on the University of Toledo Rockets at Kroger Field on Saturday at Noon. Expectations are high after last season’s 10-3 finish that was capped off by a Citrus Bowl win vs Penn State. While many familiar faces have moved on, many have returned for the 2019 season, including Junior QB Terry Wilson. With a start time of noon, you’d better get there early if you want to tailgate before heading into the stadium.
