There is no doubt Vikings Training Camp has a positive economic impact for the city of Mankato. One area that has been particularly busy is the hotel industry as fans flock to Mankato from all across the country.
City Center General Manager Mattie Eggimann says, "We have been really busy. We always looks forward to Training Camp; we have a lot of people who come to town for Training Camp who stay with us every year so we look forward to seeing those people again."
Hotel experts in the area say that this past weekend is one of their busiest for the entire year.
The last day the Vikings are in town is August 14th.
