Central Coast residents were feeling the heat on Thursday.
"It's so hot!" exclaimed Elliott McBride, who was visiting Waller Park with her family.
"It is way too hot to do anything but swim in the pool,” added her sister, Avary.
Some people at the park said they couldn't stand the heat so they decided to leave.
"I think it's really hot. It's almost too hot to be outside, to be honest," said mom Kelli McBride.
But that's not an option for many of those who had to work outside, like construction workers and fruit stand workers.
Reyes Luna has been working his fruit stand for years now and says hot days keep him motivated.
"I am going to be honest. What motivates me the most is the happiness in people's faces when I give them a slice of fresh fruit when they are coming from working in the fields and they are sweating and tired from this heat," Luna said.
Others said they are ready for cooler weather.
"Definitely looking forward to it cooling down and pulling up my boots and my sweater for sure and all those winter scarfs make it a lot more bearable to be out," McBride said.
