San Francisco Turns Down Permit for Summer of Love’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

This year, San Francisco’s Summer of Love celebrates its 50th Anniversary. Organizers of the concert commemorating the event want to hold a big event in the city this summer, but their permit has been turned down. They’ll go before the San Francisco Parks and Rec Department today to appeal that ruling. Country Joe McDonald, who was at the original event in 1967, and comedian Will Durst will be on hand to try to get that event back on track.
