DETROIT (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is on tap to participate in Detroit's Labor Day celebration.

The annual Metro Detroit AFL-CIO Labor Day parade starts at 9 a.m. Monday. Michigan Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer says Biden will speak at a downtown rally that starts at 9:30 a.m.

Biden has been a frequent visitor to Michigan, addressing the American Federation of Teachers' national convention in Detroit on July 29 and speaking at a rally at Detroit Renaissance High School on Aug. 22 during a Michigan stop that also included fundraising events.

The Labor Day appearance comes ahead of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

President Barack Obama appeared at Detroit's Labor Day parade in 2011.
