Labor Day weekend quickly coming to an end for some families.

It was a chance for many to relax, but that's not necessarily easy for everyone to do right now.

With Fall right around the corner, people soaking up the unofficial last few days of the summer.

"It was kind of like a last minute decision," says Autumn Dickerson, spending day with family. "We wanted to get them out of the house and enjoy the weather so it's a beautiful day."

Many families enjoying the view of Downtown Evansville's Riverfront whether that be taking a ride on a skateboard or hitting the waters.

For Autumn Dickerson and her family, they wanted to play the day safe, but still have fun.

"Usually we travel and visit his family, but we decided to stay at the house," says Dickerson. "We were going to take them to the park, but with everything going on we just figured we come down here and go for a walk."

Health officials were on high alert this weekend out of concern for holiday travel or large gatherings that could lead to another spike in coronavirus cases.

But for many, like Dickerson, switching gears, although slightly dissapointing, still a good holiday weekend.

"We're just going with the flow and just accepted it, so hopefully next year we'll be able to visit family," says Dickerson.

Health officials continue to urge people to practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
