As you anticipate the fun this coming Saturday at the Cypress Community Festival, please be advised that the Orange County Health Department has prohibited giving out bottled water.
Yes, you read that correctly.
In the past, non-profit booths often gave out free bottles of water, which those attending gratefully accepted — especially on the days that temperature on the Festival grounds leaped past 100° F.
Thankfully, the forecast for this coming Saturday projects hot but not dangerous temperatures, in the upper 80s to low 90s.
Still, everyone participating should do their best to prevent the heat from getting to them:
- clothing: loose, should allow evaporation of sweat; hat with a brim; sunglasses!
- frequent rest in a shady spot!
- if you feel unwell, tell someone so help can be brought to you!
- drink plenty of fluids!
Unfortunately, the Orange County Health Department has made drinking plenty of water more difficult this year.
