PHOTOSTREAM: Hessler Street Fair by Anastasia Pantsios



Sat 6/2-Sun 6/3

The Hessler Street Fair started 49 years ago, when hippies were on every street corner, dressed in tie-dye, India prints and ankle bells, playing folk songs on acoustic guitars and handing out flowers.

Come to the Hessler Street Fair today, taking place on the block-long, brick-paved street nestled behind University Circle’s new uptown developments, and you’ll see hippies of all ages, dressed in tie-dye, India prints and ankle bells, playing folk songs on acoustic guitars and handing out flowers.

The two-day festival features lots of locally made and grown food and crafts, organizations that fight for peace and healthcare and animals, and self-appointed street musicians augmenting he bands on the big stage at the end of the street. As usual, Carlos Jones & his P.L.U.S. Band closed things down at dusk Sunday evening, and since that stands for “Peace Love and Unity Syndicate,” there couldn’t be a more appropriate way to put the cap on the proceedings.
