I didn’t take any photos at this show, and can’t find any online, so if you have some photos, let me know..This is the first time this show has appeared in it’s entirety since 1998
Many people don’t know this, but HANC and employees at the Haight Ashbury Recycling Center provided some security and most of the cleanup at the Haight Street Fair for many years..thank you!
