Over the long three day Labor Day weekend, which marks the unofficial end to summer for many, soap opera stars from The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless took to social media to share their plans and fun in the sun. Labor Day is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the power of collective action by laborers. Soaps.com has compiled a collection of what some of your favorite stars were up to below.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Katrina Bowden (Flo Fulton) tackled her fear of heights and went cliff jumping into the waters below while vacationing in Hawaii. Co-star Jennifer Gareis (Donna Logan) also braved the heights on a tower drop ride at a local carnival. She posted a video and noted, “I was not prepared for this! Look at my expression after the drop!” Jacqueline MacInnes Wood posed in a stunning feather and gemstone swimsuit as she attended Burning Man in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. And Rena Sofer (Quinn Forrester) was celebrating her husband Sanford Bookstaver’s birthday over the weekend.
Days of our Lives
Laura Kai Chen (DA Melinda Trask) found herself at her happy place, a winery with her dog at her side. Brandon J. Barash (Stefan DiMera) hit the pool with his daughter Harper and had no plans to labor hard. Likewise, Kyle Lowder (Rex Brady) spent some time at the beach with his dog. Sal Stowers (Lani Price) was in Texas and preparing to go river rafting in an innertube. Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux) showed off a pair of white boots, challenging the superstition of wearing white after Labor Day and joked, “White Boots. Labor Day. Rebel.” And always the jokester, Gilles Marini (Ted Laurant) posted a photo of himself in a bunny shirt and joked, “Happy national bunny day. 😮 🐰 . I know it’s not but for a sec you thought it was😂😂.. Have a great week everyone. Don’t forget to be positive, sweet and thankful.”
Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix DuBois) spent the weekend hiking and enjoying nature with friends, which is also where Kimberly McCullough chose to be. Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Emme Rylan (Lulu Falconeri) celebrated Rylan finishing a Downtown Cardigan, and Storms revealed she’s back to knitting after injuring her hand recently. Steve Burton and his wife were enjoying the pool in Arizona, which he joked was too hot in a hashtag. Laura Wright, who is still in a cast from breaking her foot, also made the most of the weekend by enjoying the pool. And Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Scorpio-Drake) was having fun in the sun at the beach.
The Young and the Restless
Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) shared a photo at the beach with her family and wrote, “Beach days and firepit nights. Grateful for a vaca weekend. Grateful for the work.” Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers) also posted a photo of herself and her kids at the beach. Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) showcased her famous red white and blue cheesecake she made for the holiday weekend. Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) was in Las Vegas with her husband Vincent Van Patten (Christian Page) for the 7 Days to Vegas World Poker Tournament.

YESS! Ok, so I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to heights. But I’ve always wanted to do this. So when we saw a bunch of local teenagers cliff jumping in the distance, we figured out how to get there and joined them. Things I learned: -its scary but only right before you jump -local Hawaiian teenagers are way cooler than I have ever been -get out of the way when the cool teenagers yell at you to because there’s a kid who’s about to do a much more extreme jump than you just did. -Mustard still has all the hot jams
