El Festival de San Francisco
A strange little festival popped up in the Civic Center today, and at first I thought it was a premature celebration of Mexico's Independence Day, which is two days from now on September 16th.
It was instead a Pan-American affair called El Festival de San Francisco, subtitled "LATIN AMERICAN FOOD, HEALTH, AND WELLNESS FESTIVAL."
At one booth, you could buy various national flags, including Israeli ones which seemed rather odd.
Raquel Rossman above was selling Nicaraguan arts and crafts as part of her Nicarito Art business.
It was the food booths that were most enticing, and you could take your lunch to a lightly attended beer garden on a perfectly sunny day.
