Labor Day Weekend has arrived, meaning a boom for area businesses, but it also signifies the end of Summer.
Pullman Bay Restaurant sits on the corner of State Route 29 and Lake Shore Drive, just a stone throw away from Grand Lake St. Marys in Celina. This Summer's lake conditions were an improvement from years past, leading to an improvement in business.
Labor Day Weekend is a busy time for employees at Pullman Bay, but they will make the most out of this weekend as business usually starts to slow down as Winter approaches.
The improvement of the lake comes after a second alum treatment was applied to the water over the Summer. Brian Miller says large blooms were no where to be found, but algae remains in the lake.
With better lake conditions, more people found themselves out at the parks campgrounds as well this year. Labor day weekend helps boost numbers as it's one of the park's biggest weekends of the year.
As cooler weather approaches, businesses will continue to serve patrons, fishing at the lake continues with crappie fishing and the campgrounds will remain open through October, with their Halloween Campout taking place the first weekend of the month.
