PARKVILLE, Mo. - Temperatures in the low 90s forced Parkville Days to end early on Sunday.
Parkville Days, which ran from Thursday through Sunday in Parkville, Mo., closed an hour early on Sunday due to temperatures in the low 90s and the heat index in the low 100s.
Some said the event wasn’t the same this year as in year’s past because of the heat.
“I was kind of surprised when we got here because typically there was a pretty big crowd, but I think because of the heat not many people came out today,” Greyson Baker, of Gladstone, said.
Parkville Days includes carnival rides, music, vendors and a Civil War re-enactment.
