LAKE DELTON (WKOW) -- Tourism Secretary Kelli Trumble tells 27 News the mood at Tuesday's events commemorating the historic flooding of 2008 and the re-opening of Lake Delton "celebratory."
Trumble says the rebirth of the Wisconsin Dells area is critical to the state's bottom line, with $1 billion of Wisconsin's $13 billion tourist dollars coming from Sauk County.
Joe Eck, General Manager of the Wilderness Resort, tell us his business took a 30 percent hit after the flooding last year and he calls today's anniversary "the dawn of a new day."
Carl Agnelly and Tony Galli are both in Wisconsin Dells today and will bring you updates during the morning and afternoon here on our web channel plus live reports beginning tonight on 27 News at 5:00.
