MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - On warm holiday weekends, many people like to relax on the Ohio River.
Many people took advantage of the Labor Day relaxing on their boats and just sitting by the water.
Residents say its a good excuse for a day off from work and they just wanted to spend it with their families.
Beth Scott and her family drove from Zanesville to spend the day on the Marietta Harbor.
"The river, coming down from the Muskingum river hauling it all the way down to the Ohio river is just an amazing drive," said Scott.
