Ordinary people doing the extraordinary – the San Francisco Police Department. Starting salary at over $72,000. They’re hiring!
The biggest bank of Honda generators I’ve ever seen. Well, at least they don’t call it an “Eco-Urban” festival, the way they do with the Union Street Fair.
The Fillmore Jazz Fest continues tomorrow.
See you there!
Every summer on July 4th weekend in San Francisco, Fillmore Street is home to the largest free jazz festival on the West Coast: The Fillmore Jazz Festival.
The festival annually attracts more than 90,000 people from all over the City, the Bay Area, and beyond. Visitors gather to celebrate and enjoy a musical tradition of live jazz, rhythm and blues, and gospel as well as local culture and fine cuisine in the heart of the city by the bay.
This year the Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary by once again blending art and soul from sunup to sundown, from Jackson to Eddy, presenting the music of old favorites as well as new ‘up and comers’ on multiple stages. You can also browse 8 blocks of fine arts and crafts, enjoy gourmet food and beverages, and participate in cooking demos by the Fillmore’s finest chefs.
