Labor Day Fun

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Families filled the beach of Kincaid Lake Monday for a day of fun in the sun.

"Any time there is a long weekend, we are always out here. It is just relaxing, we get away from the hustle and bustle and there is really just not a way to describe it," said David Peterson.

"It is nice to get away from work for a while, we don't call it labor day any more, we call it slaybor day. To get a day off and especially a Monday and get out and enjoy and kick back, yeah I definitely enjoy it," said Kevin Richey.

"Everybody is always so busy on weekends, everybody always has stuff planned. We just thought we would take a little time out today from work to have a little family time and enjoy each other," said Jennifer Zundel.

While parents may appreciate the day away from work, boys and girls are enjoying the day away from school.

"It is very fun, I do not like school. You are doing it all with your hands, it is nothing fun."

"I do not like school either because it is boring, all you do is sit in the class room all day."

With Summer rapidly coming to an end, CenLa residents we spoke with say they are ready for a change in the weather.

"The leaves start falling, you can see more through the woods, there is definitely more wild life and its awesome," said David Peterson.

"I look more forward to camping and heading to the woods and basically transition from outdoor this to outdoor that," said Kevin Richey.

"We are excited about just the football season and the hunting season and just getting back in a routine. Kids are back and school and I guess just being back in a routine," said Jennifer Zundel.
