Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) People around the Twin Tiers are continuing to look for ways to keep cool in this heat. Binghamton Mets fans were hosed off during the game on Wednesday.

With temperatures once again reaching 90 degrees, fans in the stands got the best of both worlds.

"It's really hot so I'm really grateful to get cooled and stuff," said Landon Smith, of Vestal.

Wednesday marked the annual Super Splash Day at NYSEG stadium, and kids -- and some adults -- were screaming to get wet. The event has gone on for the past seven years and every year it always turns out to be a hot and sunny day.

"We've got the hoses spread throughout the ball park," said Connor Gates, the B-Mets director of community relations. "Occasionally, there might be an onslaught of water balloons and we've got squirt guns stationed all over the ball park."

Super Splash Day was hosted by Yes Safe Choices for Kids. It's a program sponsored by Sen. Tom Libous (R-52nd) and Lourdes Hospital

The program serves Broome, Tioga and Chenango counties and teaches kids how to make safe choices and avoid drugs and alcohol.
