Downtown Princeton, Indiana, was filled with big smiles, floats, and a lot of people screaming "happy Labor Day" on Monday morning.

"There's people I won't see for a year, but I know if they are alive and breathing, they'll be here for labor day," says Boonville Mayor Charlie Wyatt, who also serves as part of the Labor Day Association.

The morning started with float judging and then floats started filing down Main Street leading back to the fairgrounds.

The parade lasted almost an hour, honoring Union employees, first responders, teachers, and more.

"The Union labor put this on, but we honor all who labors in this country," Mayor Wyatt said.

The event was scaled down last year due to the pandemic but returned with the full four-day celebration this year.

This Parade is one of the largest in Southern Indiana, and officials say they worked closely with the health department to meet their requirements and keep the tradition alive.

The community can enjoy free carnival rides at the Gibson County Fairgrounds for the rest of the day.
