Celebrating Labor Day On A Shoestring
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) It's the last official weekend of summer. How did people celebrate it?
DaraLynn Crozier is a single mom with three teenagers. While many people were grilling on Labor Day, she and her kids were chilling. Instead of spending lots of money, they spent time playing board games, watching movies, and eating snacks.
Crozier says, "With my kids starting to get older and moving on, this is my chance to make memories. Money is one thing, but memories mean more."
For other families, the Labor Day weekend was a chance to "get out of Dodge." This family was doing last minute shopping after a volleyball tournament in Nevada and visiting the Twin Falls County Fair.
Jennifer Rodriguez from Wells, Nevada, says, "We are off to get some groceries, and then some lunch, and off to the mall to get some school clothes."
One thing's for sure. Labor Day marks the end of another summer, and most people are sad to see it go. But now we move on into fall and another school year.
Canyon Ridge freshman Kacie Crozier says, "It kind of makes me sad, because I really like summer. Going to school, I'm excited but scared at the same time. Just because it's different people, a new school."
AAA expected 34 million travelers across the US this weekend, with 85 percent of those driving.
