People in Marshfield try to beat hot weather

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

People in Marshfield today found several ways to beat the 90 degree heat.

Two, well-shaded frisbee golf courses were crowded with players.

Ice cream shops and parlors had lines out their doors.

The Hefko public pool was packed with swimmers where they jumped off diving boards and splashed in a fountain.

Lifeguards say with the heat they expected it to be a busy day.

"It says 90 degrees but with the heat index it's way over 100, so I’m glad people are here, I mean some people don't have air conditioning so it's good they're out here cooling off," said Taylor Asplin, manager of Hefko pool.

A heat advisory is expected to remain in effect until late Friday.

Experts say it's important to drink plenty of fluids during these hot summer days.
