Even with summer heat bearing down on Downtown DeLand, plenty of people came out to Tropical Nights July 21. Wearing flower leis and grass skirts, DeLandites and other strolled the streets of Downtown DeLand, stopped at participating restaurants and bars and had a great time. And just when the heat seemed its most unbearable, the DeLand Fire Department lent a hand to cool everyone down with a cool spray from the firetruck hose.
