With temperatures topping out at 99 degrees Monday night, hundreds of locals braved the sweltering air to be merry at the Richfield Hometown 4th of July Family Night event at .
The evening kicked off with the annual and music and entertainment was provided by Kidsdance. Event goers dined on 50-cent hotdogs, chips and sodas, and did their best hula and cha-cha.
The heat prompted a fire hydrant to be opened up for kids, and adults, to cool themselves before sliding down an inflatable replica of the Titantic sinking. The night ended with a showing of "The Smurfs" on a large, inflatable big screen.
