In Oakland's Jack London Square, Nazanin Uddin was trying keep her kids warm.

"We're having a great time, the kids just had some ice cream despite it being freezing!," said Uddin.

The 3rd annual "Knife Fight Gauntlet" cooking competition had a bit of a small turnout due to the weather but brought out some big appetites.

"We're warm in our hearts, we don't need that much warmth. It would have been nice with sun, but it was a good day," said chef Aaronette King.
