Many people carry out their family traditions on Memorial Day weekend.

With a few extra days off from work, several families take the opportunity to travel or visit with out of town friends but some choose to stay here in Erie.

One family has spent every Memorial Day for the last decade cleaning up their ancestors’ gravestones at cemeteries all over the area.

“We are going to each cemetery of our family. We have four generations coming along. It’s a tradition we do on Memorial Sunday, and we just want to keep the tradition alive,” said Philip Pinzok.
Like many families, the Pinzok’s say it’s important to spend the long weekend honoring loved ones.
