Thousands celebrate 1967 Summer of Love

September 03, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Even the closing of the Bay Bridge could not keep thousands of nostalgic flower children away from San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on Sunday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love.

More than 100 performers, some of whom were there the first time around, were scheduled to take to the stage for the free concert commemorating the year San Francisco became the world's counterculture capital.

At least 20,000 fans came together to celebrate peace, love and understanding, organizers said, despite the Labor Day weekend shutdown of the bridge connecting Oakland to San Francisco for repairs.
