Hundreds in Kentuckiana find ways to beat the heat
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Temps were in the 90s Sunday. It was a hot one. Many people turned out for the Abbey Road Music Festival in Downtown Louisville. The beats of rhythm and Beatles music proved stronger than the beating sun for many.
Many people were walking around with a beverage in hand and hats on their heads. WAVE 3 saw Linda Clabo fanning herself to keep cool.
"It's really wonderful. Just dress cool. You know?" said Clabo. "And just tolerate the heat. And enjoy the music."
Gary Jacob is a producer for the Abbey Road event. "We feel that for the most part, our customers are taking good care of themselves. As you see, walking around with proper water," he said.
Just outside the venue, Alison Solan decided to join her kids for a soak in a fountain.
"I thought 'OK. First the shoes come of," said Solan. "Then maybe a toe. And then, as the time progresses and I see the kids having fun, mom gets a little wet, too."
A lot of children and adults got wet at a Waterfront Park splash park where Vashti Hooper brought her family.
"You don't want them to overheat while they're playing," said Hooper. "You want them to have a good time but you don't want them to overheat. So, coming to the water park was a great way to cool off and have fun, too."
Fun was had by hundreds at Iroquois Park, too. Among the families there, Rickey Holt brought his own smoker.
"BBQ leg quarters. Pulled pork, and corn on the cob," Holt said as he listed what he was cooking.
WAVE 3 asked Holt if it was too hot to grill." It's never too hot to grill," Holt said. "That's what I do for a living. So, it's never too hot. Never too cold never too hot. I'm kind of like the mailman. Rain sleet or snow...gotta have my smoker."
