Day two of the heat wave in Omaha and the blast furnace outdoors.

This hot weather is either going to drive people to try and cool off somewhere or just stay inside.

Gene Leahy Mall was busy with the first food truck Thursday street fair.

The lunch rush hit right at the temps jumped into the high 90's

But food truck association president Kelly Keegan says he wasn't worried about the heat bringing out the lunch crowd.

While people braved the heat for a bite to eat-crowds also flocked to Fun Plex to cool off.

Managers said this year has been the busiest they have been for the last few years because of the heat.
