Cenla Celebrates Labor Day at Lakes and Parks

As the nation celebrated Labor Day, many across our area headed out to parks and lakes to enjoy their day off. Tubing, fishing, swimming and cooking out is what we found the majority of the crowd doing. The ones we talked to say they just enjoy having a day off to hang out with family. The families at area lakes were out to enjoy the day, rain or shine.

Over at City Lake Park in Alexandria, children of all ages beat the heat on the splash pad.

Labor day marks the first holiday of the semester for students. We met several kids who said they are spending the day doing what they do best: playing.

Labor Day is always the first Monday in September, and is dedicated to the achievements of the American workforce.
