SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento was especially quiet Saturday afternoon. Organizers with Second Saturday and Cesar Chavez Park events say the weather is to blame.

Organizers believe that less than one-tenth of regular visitors joined the crowds.


Many Second Saturday vendors were forced to brave the heat.


"I don't mind it too much, although I'm in kind of a sun spot," said vendor Jeff Geren.


 "We're giving out free Koozies. We're giving out free bags and free ice cream," said vendor Kenny Kellogg.


"We were feeling a little discouraged, just cause maybe not a lot of people would be out here but we have fun doing it.  It's fun to be out here and see people walking around," said vendor Natalie Reyes.


Sacramento mounted units and officers in uniform - also had to sweat it out.


"We brought out lots of water with good instructions for everyone to find their shade when they can.  Stay cool.  But, we're used to it," said Sacramento Police Sgt. Lane Polete.


No heat related injuries were reported.
