Enjoying a picture-perfect day on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, at Mingo Creek Park in Finleyville are sisters, from left, Abbigail, 9, Devon, 10, and Rebecca Zeletski, 4. They were at the park with their grandmother, Pat Zelatski, of Fayette City.

With plenty of sunshine and cool temperatures, it certainly felt like fall this weekend.

Many Mon Valley residents took advantage of the picture-perfect weather to get outdoors.

And, as our roving photographer found, many people spent the day at local parks and playgrounds.
