Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -And nobody is happier to see Squirt International come to town, than our hospitality industry. With hundreds of hockey players, their siblings and parents in town, dollars roll into the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Many teams drive here, but some teams from the west and south fly into town.

Studies have been done on the Squirt International Tournament and it is clear, the three day event is a money maker for the metro.

Al Hintz/Squirt Tournament Director: “I think the average is between 500 and 1000 a family and that in turn means 2.5 and three million dollar impact for the fargo community.”

Squirt International runs through Sunday. There are games at all Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, and Detroit Lakes rinks.
