How to Beat the Heat at this Year’s Summerfest
Summerfest is held every July 4th outside and that means the Texas heat will be in full effect. Here are some tips to help beat the heat so you can comfortably enjoy the festival:
- Pack Sunscreen: This one seems like a no-brainer, but needs to be stated anyway. Apply early and often (especially on younger children) to avoid getting burned.
- Stay Hydrated: Make sure to drink plenty of water before, during, and after Summerfest. Dehydration in the summer heat is never a good thing!
- Cover up: Dress in loose-fitting summer clothes, but cover your head with a hat to help keep the sun at bay.
- Fuel Up: In addition to staying hydrated, be sure to eat so you can maintain your energy during Summerfest. There will be a wide variety of vendors selling delicious food, so you have plenty of options to choose from.
