Labour Day marks the unofficial end of summer, but the fun doesn't have to end.
As of today, you'll still have a few weeks left to cross off a handful of activities from this year's summer bucket list:
1. Make smores by the fire
Those balmy summer nights will soon give way to cooler September evenings -- all the more reason to saddle up by the campfire (or backyard fire pit) to join graham crackers and chocolate in marshmallowy matrimony.
2. Watch a movie outside
Whether it's at the drive-in, the public park or your own backyard, watching a movie outside with a huge bowl of popcorn is a fantastic way to unwind under the stars.
3. Howl at the moon
September will be a great month to go moon-watching. Find a quiet spot at your favourite local park and catch both the last quarter moon (Sept. 1) and the lunar eclipse (Sept. 27) this month.
4. Watch the sun rise
Why not kill two birds with one stone by combining your moonwatching trip with an all-nighter to catch the sunrise?
5. Fall for some lovely waterfalls

While the falls in Niagara are the most famous in the country, Ontario is seriously spoiled for choice when it comes to waterfall watching. Find a safe spot by the rocks to meditate, sketch or just listen to the soothing sounds.
6. Bake a dessert with fresh-picked fruit
Sizzling summer temperatures may call for frozen treats, but one of the best parts of transitioning to autumn is being able to use the oven again without overheating your home. Fruit cobblers, crisps and crumbles pair perfectly with a scoop (or two) of ice cream.
