Thousands of people came out to peruse the stalls and enjoy the music at the Rock Make Street Festival today, on Treat Avenue between 17th and 18th streets. What began as a family-oriented event with children playing music onstage while others danced nearby has become a venue for adults who want to check out live music and local shopping.
Food trucks, including Kasa Indian, TomKat, Voodoo and Tara’s Organic Ice Cream, are parked on 18th Street and people are lining up to try each vendor’s specialties.
Artisan crafts, from vibrant crocheted necklaces to wooden ties, glitter under the Mission sun. People of all ages are sauntering from stand to stand, eagerly checking out one-of-a-kind Mission crafts.
Overheard at the festival:
“This ice cream tastes like it was grown by fairies.”
“I’m here to rock out.”
