Organizers for Lexington's Fourth of July celebration tomorrow say they're not taking any chances when it comes to those scorching hot temperatures.
"Obviously we want people to be smart that are coming down to participate. Bring a water bottle with you and be aware of what your body tells you as far as what you can tolerate," said Renee Jackson of the Downtown Lexington Corporation.
The Downtown Lexington Corporation is taking some extra steps this year to make sure everyone stays safe.
"We did buy extra water to have for our workers and make sure that our workers are safe. All of our parade marshals will have water and, obviously, anyone who needs or is in distress, we'll be giving water to those people. We've got extra EMS on duty throughout the day. We want to make sure that we're safe so it's well-worth the effort," said Jackson.
With the possibility of pop-up showers throughout the day, people at the celebration will have some indoor options.
"We have a lot of our downtown bars and restaurants that'll be open so hopefully people can take advantage of that if it does pop up and rain for a little bit," said Jackson.
The festivities will kick off with the Bluegrass 10,000 at 7:30 tomorrow morning.
