Joplin commemorates Labor Day

Updated:

 

Many chose campgrounds like Rivers Bends near Joplin to commemorate Labor Day. 

The site opened four months ago, but didn't expect to see much business this soon. 

Jean Workman and her family made their final stop of the weekend at the site for a Monday fun day. 

"We usually have a family weekend because we have four days off," said Jean Workman.   

Holiday festivities were in and out of the campground. The groups even gave a special cheer to the holiday, saying it's a time to reflect on the champions of American labor.  

"I really think as an American it's to celebrate all races all people that work really hard in our linage to give them a break, everybody needs a break," said Workman. 

"Holidays, that's when people take an extra day to spend with family," said Owner of Rivers Bend Tom Ferguson.  

Ferguson says, the holiday has brought in families from all walks of life. 

"We get a lot of canoes, bikers, businessmen, attorneys, doctors every class of people," said Ferguson. 

The deck is home to live music with pickers from the area, also a water balloon sling shot across shoal creek. 

Many spending time in the sun before warmer temperatures pack their bags and head down south.
