High temps bring high numbers to Presque Isle

Local News

This past weekend’s warm, summer-like conditions are being credited with the huge crowds on Presque Isle over the holiday.

Those warm temperatures along with the long weekend prompted thousands to jump in their cars to make the park a weekend destination.

Park staff estimates that between Saturday and Monday more than 102,000 people came to Presque Isle. That’s more than the current population of the city of Erie and 21 percent more that last year.
