This week, the Elkhart Aquatic Center is hosting its biggest event since it opened. A four day swim meet runs Thursday through Sunday, with 1200 athletes from Illinois.
Their visit is expected to give a boost to the local economy, and give the aquatic center the chance to show off their Olympic-sized swimming pool. Hotels are said to be at around 90 percent occupancy this weekend.
Another big swimming event is planned for later this month, with nearly 1000 swimmers from seven states.
