Vintage Days kicks off at Fresno State

FRESNO, Calif.

People were taking advantage of this first weekend of the year with temps in the 90's. For the crowd at Fresno State's Vintage Days, this weekend is a chance to break out the summer clothes.

"I honestly like the heat, because it's been cold lately so I've been just counting down the days for the summer to come," said Fresno State student Nadia Lewis.

Lewis grew up in the Bay Area and she's not quite used to Central Valley heat. "It's takes some getting used to, definitely got to stay hydrated."

The weather will certainly get warmer, but people are feeling the heat since we haven't had hot weather in months. "It's like what, 92, 93 degrees? I don't know, it's a little too much too fast, in my opinion," said Fresno State student Raphael Rizk.

No matter the temperature many students showed up to work. Student organization ran booths with food and games. Vintages days is, after all, a fundraiser.

The weekend festivities are planned by students with the money raised going back to the university or to charity. There's also plenty of chances to shop since about 150 venders from all over the Central Valley are in town.

There will also be an outdoor screening of the movie "Grease" Saturday night at 8 p.m. Then Sunday morning at 9 a.m., there is a 5k run/walk to benefit the Viticulture and Enology Research Center on campus.

Vintage days wraps up at 4:30 Sunday afternoon.
