Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, which means pools in the area are now open.

Several public pools throughout the Mid-Ohio Valley opened Saturday despite the stormy weather.

The assistant manager at Marietta's Aquatic Center says it had a pretty good turnout on the first day of pool season.

The pool was cleared briefly Saturday afternoon following a quick thunder threat.

The Aquatic Center is open from noon to 6 p.m. every day.
