It's Finally Summer

Posted: Updated:

Slip on those sunglasses, break out the bbq, and slather on that sunscreen because it's finally that time of year.

Tomorrow is officially the 2014 summer solstice.

This means it's the first official day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

It's when the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky.

It is also the longest day of the year--Bismarck will have about 16 hours of daylight.

We went out to find out what people are going to be doing on the first day of summer.

"We're gonna have a little campfire out, we've got maybe some camping planned, little late night kinds stuff going on.  I like to ride bikes, and play with friends.  We normally go to the park with my kids, I have two boys so park, river, desert.  It's gonna be a long day I mean it's almost 11 o'clock at night when the sun goes down so it's awesome." says Bismarck residents

The solstice happens twice in the calender year.  It occurs in December for the Southern Hemisphere, and on June 20th or 21st in the northern half of the year.
