Up Your Alley fun
The annual Up Your Alley street fair south of Market saw leather enthusiasts enjoy sunny San Francisco weather Sunday, July 29. Christopher Atilano-Galvan and Enrique Chavez played around at the fair, a run-up to the larger Folsom Street Fair in September. Demetri Moshoyannis, executive director of Folsom Street Events, which produces both street fairs, said that this year exhibitor booths for Up Your Alley increased by about 10 percent from last year. He estimated attendance at a little over 12,000, up from last year, and there were no problems reported. "This was our smoothest one yet, all things considered," he said. This year's Folsom Street Fair takes place a week earlier than usual, Sunday, September 23 and main stage headliners will be The Limousines, Little Boots, and Ladyhawke.
