And with beautiful weather, people have not only been celebrating our American heroes, but also celebrating the unofficial start of summer.
Presque Isle State Park has been quite busy today with families fishing, cooking out -- eating hot dogs, playing in the water and just enjoying the beautiful weather.
We talked to a bunch of families today who say this holiday is all about spending quality time with one another, and remembering those who served, and those who died to protect our freedom.
Families say they are thrilled to be here at the park celebrating.
