Park Rangers anticipated thousands of people would visit Presque Isle Monday.
They said Memorial Day is one of their busiest times to begin with.
Since it turned out to be such a nice day, with temperatures in the mid 70’s, they saw a huge turn out.
Dozens of families brought grills to have a cook out on the beach.
Even more had brought their towels and beach chairs to lay out, and several people just enjoyed walking the park.
Many visitors said they’ve been coming to Presque Isle on Memorial Day for years.
They say it’s important to remember the reason we have a long weekend in the first place.
