There is nothing like a sweet treat to beat the heat, and Thursday morning, those treats were free.
Starting at 9 a.m., Stormteam 16's Frank Waugh and the folks at B100 radio were on hand at Merrifield Park in Mishawaka to hand out free snow cones to the first 500 people who showed up.
The Mishawaka Parks department also passed out free pool passes.
The folks at B100 came up with the idea for snow cones, but NewsCenter 16’s Frank and Mike were happy to take some of the credit for the weather from B100’s Cody and Deb.
“Frank Waugh said it's going to be hot, way hot, so what else to do but get free snow cones for everybody in Michiana.”
“It's a great day, thanks to Frank and Mike for giving us hot weather.”
It didn't take long to run through those 500 snowcones. By 11 a.m., there was nothing left but a lot of sticky fingers.
