ROME, N.Y - It was a busy day at the Delta Lake State Park boat launch. It's one of the busiest days of the year for the State Park in terms of boaters.
Monday saw large lines of locals waiting in line to put their boats in the water.
I'm meeting up with some friends. I'm picking them up at the Delta Lake Yacht club and we are just going to hang out onto the water and have a good time," said Bob Durham.
Some boaters waiting in line for several minutes, excited to get out on the water and enjoy the day. But boater Zachary Wright said that the overall meaning of Memorial Day is always in the back of their minds.
"For sure we are definitely thinking about all that we've done. Obviously, none of this could have been done without them, the freedom that we living today," said Wright.
The State Park boat launch is open from 8 am until Dusk. The cost to use it is the same as general park admission which is 7 dollars.
