    It depends on what you are trying to say.

    If you are asking about what you do each and every Labor Day, year after year, like about a tradition, say "What do you usually do every Labor Day?"

    If you are asking about this specific Labor Day and what will happen during the day (as opposed to the evening or night), then say, "What do you usually do during Labor Day?"

    The first ("What do you usually do every Labor Day?") is certainly more common. "What do you usually do ON Labor Day" sounds the most natural.

    Hope that helps!
