June 21, 2014 - Lots of swimmers took part in a seven year tradition at the bay this morning.

Nearly 300 swimmers swam the distance from Presque Isle to the Erie Yacht Club for this year's Bay Swim.

Event coordinators told us this is a great way to enjoy the bay -- which wasn't always "swimmable," a way to support some local causes, and a time to remember the event's youngest swimmer who was killed in a car accident just about four years ago.
