CHICO, Calif. - What was once an infamous Labor Day spectacle is now just another relaxing day on the Sacramento River. Both Butte and Glenn counties, along with the state continue to enforce their alcohol ban through the holiday weekend.
Park authorities and local business owners we spoke to said that big, boozy parties like those from the past left behind a big mess.
Before Action News Now left the scene on Monday, we spotted just about a few dozen college students floating down the Sacramento River.
There were 800 people expected to be on the river this year. That's down from the 15,000-20,000 people that floated down the river before the alcohol ban.
