Long Day for Lots of Fun

Well, it’s going to be a really long day, literally.

Monday is officially the first day of Summer, and the longest day of the year. Many kids were out today at the Village Pool in South Zanesville enjoying the extended day of sunshine.

"We have a lot of people coming out here to swim. We have a good, good pool. We’ve been having a good time, so far it’s been getting hot so everyone needs to come out here and swim," says lifeguard Zack McPeak.

For most kids summer means lazy days by the pool and lots of fun in the sun. Some kids we talked to had their Summer plans all lined up.

"Swimming, riding my bike, and cross country," says Josh Kerns.

"You get to come and swim and you get to play outside all the time," says Hannah Simon.

Most kids agreed that the pool is where they will be spending most of their time this Summer.
