Savanna Larson, 7, a student from the Waldorf Inspired Sacramento Homeschoolers (WISH), takes part in a maypole celebration of spring on Wednesday at Ancil Hoffman Park.

The maypole dance, which originated in European folk festivals dating back to medieval cultures, traditionally celebrates the arrival of spring.

But here in Sacramento the temperatures feel more like summer. It’s expected to be about 15 degrees above normal for the next two days as the transition is made into May with 90-plus-degree heat.
