From left, Scarlett Palmieri and her cousins, Jennie and Katie Merckel, enjoy the ride down the new water slide at Maumee Bay State Park. The 22-foot-high, 45-foot-long slide, which sits right on the beach, went up July 4 and will come down after Labor Day. The three girls are from New York and made a stop at the park yesterday while on their way to visit an aunt in Indiana. Forecasters say the weather will be ideal for such outdoor fun, with mostly sunny skies and highs of about 80 daily at least through the holiday on Monday.
