Haight Ashbury Street Fair 2009 a Huge Success

Not sure what the Yelpers have a problem with, but the Haight Ashbury Street Fair went off today without a hitch, just like last year.

Look at the swirling mass of humanity on just one block of Haight Street:

Can you see the superfluity of nuns in white approaching the Fair? Also note the F430 Ferrari supercar (sans license plates), one of many exoticars that made the journey to the Upper Haight today. Also note the sign: “No Open Containers of Alcohol.” Too bad.

Of course, all you need to get around the alcohol ban is a gallon jug of overproofed white rum and a giveaway “water” bottle. As seen on Ashbury.

District Five Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi was on the scene, gathering names for his newsletter distribution list.

Poorbot was looking for handouts:

“SHOW US YOUR BOOBS… please.” “FABULOUS PRIZES.” “DON’T WORRY (WE’RE GAY)” These inebriates residing above the Ben & Jerry’s at the corner of Ashbury were true to their word, tossing down trinkets to all flashers male and female.

You kmow why this San Francisco Native baby is better than you? Cause he had the foresight to be born in San Francisco, that’s why. He won the lottery/ when he was born.

    That’s odd … I photographed what may be the exact same Ferrari on my block later Sunday. Although when I spotted it, it was involved in a dumb real estate marketing scheme.

    does anyone know which bands played at the haight street fair masonic stage.

    specifically the hip hop/ dj gig with the two women rappers from oakland w/ dj dropping awesome beats? and then the electric keyboard, bass and drum gig to follow?

    great day, great weekend.
