Despite the stress from COVID-19 and school getting back into session, families and friends of Bowling Green came together to celebrate Labor Day this past weekend. WKU cut the holiday weekend short and held classes on Labor Day due to the new schedule instated for the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the WKU and greater Bowling Green communities took advantage of the weather and celebrated on Saturday and Sunday. Among a variety of small events and gatherings, locals used parks to play games with their friends or picked apples and pet cows at local attractions Jackson’s Orchard and Chaney’s Dairy Barn. No matter where they ended up, there were laughs to be had and memories to be made in Bowling Green this weekend, and this Labor Day was the perfect excuse to take the time to sit back and relax.
