Since 1974, The Merchants, Restaurants, and Professionals, as well as the twin cities of Albany and Berkeley CA, have hosted the Solano Avenue Stroll, the East Bay’s largest street festival! I have tried to attend every year since I first heard of this festival. After all, it’s 26 blocks of fun, entertainment, food, and lots of people watching. I’ll show you what I saw.
There were foods!
Lots of music. Every block features a different type of music.
Interesting exhibit. I want this car!!!!
There were dancing on the streets, and belly dancing on the stage.
Belly dancers with hair action too.
And I saw this booth. It’s owned by a fellow blogger, Louis, who blogs here. I thought I’d finally get to meet him, but he later commented on my blog that he was wandering from his shop to the booth. May be I should just drop by his store and introduce myself next time.
This is Solano Avenue. It’s filled with great restaurants and shops, extremely difficult to find parking, but always a great place to visit. This was the weekend when we had some rain here in the Bay Area. This shot was taken just before the sky opened up.
So this is what I’m sharing from my world this week. If you want to see what’s going on in other people’s world, visit MY WORLD.
