CHAMPAIGN -- Just a week after Central Illinois got pounded with snow, people were soaking up the sunshine and 50 degree weather. Dozens of people were outside at Hessel Park.

Some children were playing in the sand with their friends. Others were exploring the playgrounds. Parents said the nice weather gave their kids the chance to use some pent-up energy after being stuck inside.

One family there was testing out their kites. It may not have been as windy as they would have liked but they said they had a good time trying.
