Scenes from the Haight-Ashbury street fair

The Haight Ashbury Street Fair is an annual June event that’s been going on for 35 years, becoming for a day the center of ‘peace, love and happiness.’ There’s a hemp and/or counter-cultural theme to most of the vendor’s offerings, whether art, crafts or t-shirts.
