Tourtellotte Pool closes for the season

MANKATO, Minn. -


Tourtellotte Pool was the place to be Sunday afternoon in Mankato, as the facility wrapped up the season.

With mercury levels soaring into the 90-degree range, people flocked in droves to the facility to cool off.


And despite a stretch with below-average temperatures, Sunday's thermometer reading helped bring in business to end the season on a high note.
"It's been a great season," said Tony Shanks, assistant pool manager. "It was kind of a lull, late July, early August with the temperatures, but definitely today we're not feeling that."
As far as attendance goes, spokespeople say about 500 people stopped by Tourtellotte for its final day of the season.
