Plattsburgh beach short on space

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

It's no surprise with this heat beach-goers are flocking to the beach in Plattsburgh. The trouble is, with Lake Champlain so high after all the rain we've had, there isn't much beach to enjoy.

Still, the crowds are a welcome sight to the concession stands on the boardwalk at City Beach.

"This year's been a little rough; because of the weather, we're struggling a little bit. The high water doesn't help. There's not a lot of beach, so it's been a little slow, but we're getting better now," said Joseph Kovacs, who owns a concession stand.

Along with a drier and sunnier forecast for the next several days, this weekend also is the beginning of the traditional two-week "construction holiday" in Quebec, which business owners hope will bring a lot of visitors across the border.
