Being the birthplace of Senator James H. Kyle (an influential figure in the creation of Labor Day), Cedarville celebrates the holiday every year with fireworks, a parade, and even a pancake breakfast.
Cedarville police treat kids to a train ride around the community park Sunday afternoon. At dusk, families gather at the park for the fireworks display.
