Spring BreakOfficials are reporting that the weather has appeared to have little effect on out-of-the-area Spring Breakers traveling to the Island.

Mary K. Hancock, Special Events Manager for the South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau, reported Monday that hotel occupancy has increased from 60 percent last week to 85 percent currently. That percentage is expected to reach 90 percent by Wednesday.

And although Hancock said it was impossible to give an exact number of Spring Breakers on the Island, officials have estimated upwards of 30,000 to 45,000 students expected during the entire month.
