When people think of San Francisco they envision . . . the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, or a hippie standing on the corner of Haight and Ashbury. The Summer of Love in 1967 shaped how San Francisco is viewed by the world and laid the groundwork for who we are as a society. This summer, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and, just like in 1967, we are expecting 100,000 people to come to San Francisco and honor the magic that happened here fifty years ago.
