MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Crowds in the greater Charleston area spent the afternoon beating the heat at the Memorial Waterfront Park in Mount Pleasant.
The park turned into a water wonderland for the town's annual Splash Day.
"It gives everyone something to do on a hot day," Julie Hill, who brought her family from West Ashley, said. "The kids are getting bored now since it's the middle of the summer. They're starting to get a little antsy at home, not wanting to read their school books, or do summer homework, so it's a good break."
Over two-thousand people came out play on the nine inflatable water slides.
The Mount Pleasant Fire Department also brought one of their trucks to serve as a "mister" to keep everyone cool.
"[I'm looking forward to] just get[ting] wet," Chrishawn Reid said.
The town will hold another splash event on August 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
It's free and open to the public.
