Held on Polk Street from Pacific to Union Streets on September 25th and 26th, the FREE festival will sport two stages, food booths, arts and crafts, a merchant marketplace and a family area so you can hang out with the kids.
If you were at the Bay Bridged's Rock Make Street Festival, you might have been lucky enough to catch one of the best bands of day, the Thrashers.

Because the Thrashers have just turned ten years old, and their instruments were almost bigger than their own bodies.
Lots of stuff brewing at the Levi's Workshop on Valencia Street tomorrow.

The perils of the Gulf oil spill are far from vanishing, which is why Bay for the Bayou is an event definitely worth attending.
