Cooler Temperatures Make for More Outdoors Fun

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- The temperatures dropping across Delmarva came as a relief for those looking to spend their weekend outdoors.

It’s the perfect day at the park for kids like 8-year-old Jada Hughes. There are many things she could do at Picadilly Castle at Brecknock Park in Kent County. But her favorite is swinging on the swings.

“It’s very fun,” said Hughes. “Sometimes people jump off. It’s kind of fun when you jump off.”

She’s glad to be able to enjoy the day outdoors. She wasn’t able to do so when the heat wave swept across Delmarva.

“It was very, very hot,” said Hughes.

Hughes was just one of many kids enjoying the day at the park with the Because We Care Summer Program.

“Today was so nice we decided to come to the park,” said Sylvia Sampson with the organization. “All the kids were having fun, we had lunch and we're just having a good time."

The big event happening this weekend in Kent County is Firefly. People were glad to see the temperatures cool down from where they were before.

For campers like David Kirwin of Connecticut, he says it would have been a nightmare if the heat wave continued.

"It can be scorching hot too which kind of gets brutal with the bands but the overcast is nice,” said Kirwin. “A little bit of rain definitely helps and it probably will be the next couple of days. But a little bit of rain definitely is nice."

Many of the campers at the event planned on spending their entire weekend outdoors. They say thoughts of temperatures going beyond 90 degrees again were not ideal.

"I mean last night like sleeping on a tent we were really hot. It was pretty horrible,” said Elite Paul of New Jersey. “ Now we're actually pretty excited about this overcast."

Whether playing in the park or camping out for Firefly, for these people, cooler temperatures means more fun ahead.
