Live music and local street performers are also more prevalent during summer on Second Saturdays. Street performer Archime Vice, 21, said there is an increase in police patrolling during the summer.

“More cops are out late on summer nights to stop buskers (street performers) from playing after 9 p.m.”

Like Bell, Andrew Emary, 26, a furniture installer who lives in Elk Grove, along with his wife Juliana agreed that girls are wearing less clothing, but said they don’t wear enough clothing.

“In the summer, girls are wearing shorts that are too short, and I’ve even seen them wear their bikinis at the mall.”
