Children playing in a spray shower

Spray Showers

Just because the weather is heating up doesn't mean there aren't plenty of opportunities for kids to have fun outside. On hot days, make sure to splash around at a spray shower in a park or playground near you. In general, spray showers operate on days when the temperature hits 80 degrees or higher, so you can cool down while having a blast!
