Some avoided the muggy weather on Sunday, and spent it indoors at the movies with their moms.
Dozens of people were at the Albany Carmike Cinemas Wynnsong Theater to watch the new movie Moms Night Out.
Families say its great to have a day to just celebrate moms, and all the sacrifices they make. One Albany man says he enjoys spoiling his wife on this special day.
"It allows me to be able to experience it with my wife and all of our kids and be a dad to them and help them out anyway I can by using the example that she sets for me," says Albany resident Lance Montgerard.
The new movie Mom's night out is a comedy that features a group of moms who go out and leave the kids with their husbands.
