MILLS, Wyo. — It was a hot one Saturday, but that didn’t stop crowds by the hundreds from visiting Mills for the city’s annual Summer Fest.
Vendors, food trucks, live music and a kids play area kept smiles on faces and toes tapping as families perused crafts and other goods for sale.
The official high temperature by 3:30 p.m., recorded by the National Weather Service at the Casper airport, was 99 degrees.
Although some kids could be heard telling their parents that the inflatable play area was too hot for their feet, Bikers Against Child Abuse was there to help them cool off with free snocones and cotton candy. Later, the bikers got their own chance to cool off by getting dunked in the dunk tank.
