Presque Isle State Park was the place to be today.
Out of towners and locals caught some rays and enjoyed a little r and r at the beach.
From beach parties and picnics to swimming in the crystal clear water, there was something for everyone.
Although it is a day off of work for some, the real reason for this holiday resonates with many.
Several people telling us this day is about the men and women who put it all on the line and fought for our freedom.
Thousands were at Presque Isle State Park.
We will have official numbers on attendance in the upcoming week.
