Last week's heat wave sent residents, young and old, to the Antioch Aqua Center for a bit of relief.

The hottest weather yet to hit the Village this summer caused many to seek a bit of relief and fun at the Antioch Aqua Center in Williams Park, 741 Main St., this past week.

Temperatures last week topped the 90-degree mark on several days and were complimented by a stifling humidity and occasionally heavy rains.

The Center, now in its third year of operation, offered welcomed cooling to both adults and children during the heat wave.
