First Friday, Oakland, 3 August 2012

Oakland has the most diverse population, and they were out for First Friday, 3 August, to roam the galleries, the crowd sometimes almost in pedestrian gridlock, and to dance in the streets, whether that was planned or whether the cops had to resign themselves to it, blocking those streets from entry.  Many beautifully refinished old automobiles were drawn around one drive-in on Telegraph, one of several First Friday rituals, with groups of musicians playing here and there along the way.
