Hangin’ with Hippies


By Elle

I’m a hippie at heart, so I look forward every year to the Hessler Rd. Street Fair, Cleveland’s annual “hippie” fair, now in its 43rd year.

Spent Saturday afternoon there, noshing on hemp bars and falafel, visiting clothing and jewelry vendors and, of course, people watching. Came away with some uncommon finds (see below) but, more important, enjoyed the time with family. Nothing like a beautiful day in May on Hessler Road. Peace, man.
