Beating the heat, Lions-style

Plenty of youngsters headed to the water park on Sunday to cool off in this scorching weather.

Nelson newcomer Linnea Wagner spent the afternoon taking advantage of the Lions Park water features with her older brother Darien. The 5 and 7-year-old engaged in a water battle, ran through the spray and met some new local friends.

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Drake Proctor pulled this stunt while Darien looked on tenatively.

Eight-year-old Nelsonite Atyln Proctor (background) ran through the water with Abby Ens, 9 (orange) and Agathe Passaro, 9.

Seven-year-old Cesar Passaro wasn’t far behind.

Then everyone gathered for a group shot.
