Plenty of families were cooling off in the river and enjoying the sun. On the first day of July, temps rose once again into the 90s. Something that`s become the norm over the past week.
In the past week, we`ve had five days in which the temp rose to at least 89.
"Just enjoy the day. Relax. Enjoy the water a little bit," Dan Schloer of Mandan said.
"The way it`s been going, I think it`s going to be a really good summer. Compared to how it`s been tehlast few years, we`re due for it. We really are," Jacob Baumeister of Bismarck said.
Open parking spaces at the boat ramp were hard to find this weekend.
