Labor Day signs the last day of swimming for 2021 at Oglebay

Top Stories

Today we are stopping to smell the flowers. 

Doesn’t Oglebay look picturesque? 

And people are flooding to the park on their Monday off to walk the dog, head to the pool one last time, and to not even speak the word ‘work.’ 

I caught up with a group picnicking and, in my opinion, they are ending summer out the perfect way! 

“We’re celebrating our dear friend Annie’s 40th birthday! We hired Glam Picnic Company to come out to Oglebay on this gorgeous day to set everything up for us. We’re gonna have a couple hours of fun and cocktails, have a little lunch.” “This is the best way to end out a crazy hectic summer.”

If that was your reminder that fall is almost here, savor the sunscreen, the beach balls, and pina coladas because they’re heading into the closet soon. 

Labor Day Weekend also means there won’t be any more swimming for the year. Even this morning, Oglebay’s pool was packed with kids in floaties! Labor Day is traditionally the last weekend the pool stays open. And on a perfect day like this, everyone came to soak up that last bit of summer!

“We’ll have a good turnout today. The weather looks nice. All the activity areas are open. The Good Zoo, Schenk Lake with the paddle boats and miniature golf. Our Aerials Aventure Course is open this afternoon. We have a lot of activities so come on up and enjoy the day.”

The water will stay in the pool at Oglebay until next Sunday, where a hairier species will get a turn at the water: ‘Drool at the Pool.’ Instead of kids, you’ll see the pool filled with dogs! That will happen this coming Sunday, September 12th, from 11 to 1.
