With heat index over 100 kicking off the weekend, you know we are in store for some real summer weather. Here are a few ideas on how to keep cool this summer in the St. Cloud area!

1. See a New Movie - The Marcus Parkwood Cinema has reclining seats, new movies, and AC! Here are a few new ones out this weekend:

  • Sicario - a female FBI agent takes on a drug cartel
  • Uncle Drew - Comedy with NBA star Kyrie Irving playing an older version of himself playing basketball
  • Won't You Be My Neighbor - Filmmaker Morgan Neville examines the life and legacy of Fred Rogers

2. Mall Walk - Gets the body moving, has places that sells ice cream, and is good people watching, all in climate controlled comfort.

3. Quarry Park Beach - Grab an inflatable unicorn (or just a normal inner tube, your choice) and cool off at Minnesota's #1 beach! 

4. Try a New Place for Ice Cream - There are plenty of options around the area to get a cool treat. Mr. Twisty, Dairy Queen, Cold Stone Creamery, Cherry Berry, Fudgin Delicious Ice Cream, pick a place you haven't been to and try it out!

5. SPLASH PADS! - They're free and there are multiple!!! What more of a reason do you need?

Have a great weekend and keep cool!
