Summer of Love Celebrations

Summer of Love celebrations are bringing back memories of unity and freedom, of music in the parks, sharing drugs with strangers, and a feeling of optimism and faith in humanity. In San Francisco we are getting ready for a big concert in Golden Gate Park. The details and links:

A free concert in Golden Gate Park celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love takes place Sunday at Speedway Meadow, featuring dozens of veterans of the era.

Special guests who cannot be advertised because of other performances in the area will also appear. Among the guest master of ceremonies will be Wavy Gravy, Woodstock festival producer Artie Kornfeld and poet Lenore Kandel of “The Love Book.”
