Drawing a crowd

My husband and I just love the summer. It is a time of year where we can spend time with friends and family outdoors and enjoy the warm temperatures. There does come a point, however, when the temperature is reached so high that we are forced to stay inside where it is air conditioned. ┬áNormally this is around the end of August and it just so happens to coincide with our huge County Fair that we love to go to. We normally try to go during the evening when it is a bit cooler but our granddaughter was performing at one of the shows and we needed to spend the day there. The temperature that day was in the upper 90s and we did our best to duck into every air-conditioned building we could find. The performance tent where she was going to be dancing was not climate controlled, or so we thought, so we dreaded going down there just after lunch. When we arrived we noticed that there were huge crowds of people gathered to go in and see the show and we felt that was going to make it even more uncomfortable. However, as we entered the tent we realized that the space was quite cool. We looked above us to see huge blowers that were attached to portable air conditioners down below that we’re providing a wonderful and comfortable entertainment space. We actually didn’t want to leave once the performance was over. The use of portable HVAC units has become more popular as venues have tried to expand and utilize outdoor space. We were very grateful that they took advantage of those during our trip to the fair this year.
