Fillmore Jazz Festival

Fillmore Jazz Festival is one of the mainstays of the SF street festival annual lineup and until this year I haven't been in one, which dumbfounds me truly since I make sure that I go to a street festival at least once.

And so when we found ourselves without any plans on this year's 4th of July weekend, we readily penciled in a visit to this very popular festival that draws about 90,000 people every year.

The festival is along Fillmore Street between Eddy and Jackson.

There were a lot of people, especially since the weather cooperated. It was nearly 80s that day, which is rare in SF in July.

We were there for the music and stages were set up at different intersections. We found one that was setting up for show so we stayed there and listened to the music from Latin group.

And while I was swaying to the Latin rhythm, people watching was too compelling to pass, so I let my camera work overtime.

It was a fun festival. Didn't taste any of the food, just the beer, because we were dining somewhere after the festival.
