Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer. Many people can't let the season slip away without a proper send-off.

Many people spent their day off at the Washington Park Pool. Monday is the last day the pool is open for the season.

For many people, Labor Day is one last chances to party before summer ends.

Keith Lynch spent the day with his family at the pool enjoying summer's end. "We do have the day off because of Labor Day and we enjoy that; it's a great day for everybody to kind of celebrate that we all do work and get the day off so we don't have to today," Lynch says.

The holiday is usually celebrated as a day of rest.

"I get very few days off so I'm really happy to get a day off here and there," Elaine Sweetman says.

Summer's end is just the beginning for the Lynch family. "I enjoy fall and once it gets a little cooler we'll all be able to spend more time outside and not have to be in a pool. [There are a] lot of fun things to do around here even when it's not 100 degrees," Lynch says.

If you're not ready to let go of the summer, there are a couple indoor pools in Charlottesville still open.

Labor Day may be the symbolic end of summer, but summer does not officially end for about another three weeks.
