OCEAN GROVE - Labor Day weekend is in full swing and plenty of New Jersey residents are spending their holiday at the Jersey Shore.

Residents were treated to hot summer weather in Ocean Grove and by 8 a.m., the boardwalk was bustling with biker and runners who got an early start to the last weekend before school starts. Parking was even difficult, as most spots were taken early.

The warm weather has also been beneficial to local business, which have been thriving during the busy summer.

Waves at the beach are much calmer today, but due to a tropical storm off the coast Friday, swimming was not permitted along the Shore in Monmouth and Ocean counties.
