Forestville residents took to the streets of the village Monday demanding an end to the current heat wave, which has seen temperatures in the 90s for five days.
Demonstrators, starting at Todd Street, marched to City Hall chanting, singing and banging drums while denouncing all things hot.
Debbie Wynot was among the horde demanding City Hall do something about ending the heat wave. “Our leaders said during the election they would protect us. What are they waiting for winter?” Ms. Wynot asked.
The protesters held up anti heat signs and gave speeches on the steps of City Hall about the perils of sweltering heat. Chants of “Hey Hey, Ho Ho this heat wave has got to go,” could be heard in Rockwell Park.
The crowd was so raucous that an image of the Heat Index was burned in effigy.
Officials say they have no plan in place to quell the punishing heat and instead will let nature take its course, much to the disappointment of the protestors.
The National Weather Service said they expect the summer to remain a mixture of warm and hot.
