August brings warm end to summer
Many students headed back to school this week, marking the unofficial end of summer.
But the temperatures in the last week or two of August made it feel as if summer was really just getting started.
The same seemed true at the Red Wing Water Park.
For the whole summer, attendance was down by about 1,000 people from the 2012 season, Community Recreation coordinator Dave Borgen said. Much of that was due to a colder June and July, though.
