Harper Hancock, 10, leaps onto her blow up unicorn Patricia on Monday when kids were escaping from the 90°F+ heat at the Buffalo pool. The pool was originally scheduled to open on June 19th but moved up their opening date a week because of the high temperatures.

With several days of record-breaking heat and temperatures generally rising, the pool decided to open a week early, offering a cool break from the hot air beginning last Saturday, June 12. Kids flocked to the gates, leaving bikes scattered around the entrance as they enjoyed a cool break from the heat. The Buffalo pool has instated an entrance fee in order to maintain and sustain the pool.
