Life preservers are always available for kids at Sacramento's Discovery Park as the weather warms.

This year, it's happening two months earlier than usual.

Sacramento County Law specifies that children under the age of 13 must be wearing life preservers. Officials recommend adults wear them as well.

And for visitors like Dao Vang, it's good to see them on his family, even if he's troubled by warmer-than-usual weather patterns for this time of year.

"This year is just bad. Our drought right now, it's even bad for fisherman," Vang said. "We're having our worse year this year."

Still, Vang said Tuesday is all about fun.
