Temperatures hit triple digits in some parts of the Bay Area Saturday.

"I think at one point I saw 103 on our weather gauge," Alameda County Fire Department Division Chief Eric Moore said.

At the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton that meant an increase in the number of heat exhaustion incidents. Firefighters responded to more than a dozen calls Saturday.

"That's a huge spike in our heat related calls," Moore said.

People at the fair found ways to beat the heat by using water misters.

"They're amazing. Those are like the hidden spot so we might head over there again later on tonight," one fairgoer said.

Some sought relief today at The Wave in Dublin.

The water park is offering free recreational swimming between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. this weekend.
The heat wave may feel like the dog days of summer, but it didn't stop the style witnessed at CorgiCon where dog lovers took in the fresh air at San Francisco's Ocean Beach, or the evening breeze back at the fair.

"We get a nice breeze through the property so definitely in the evening we've been seeing larger crowds," Angel Moore with the Alameda County Fair said.

Because a little heat shouldn't keep you away from your favorite fair treat.
