Temescal: A fair to remember

On July 10th, the Rig rolled up Telegraph Avenue for the Temescal Street Fair. The day couldn’t have been brighter, and the citizens of Oakland brought the charm in full force.

The Hoodslam wrestlers drew cheers for their good-natured smackdowns, Seven Salon beautified the masses with custom hair feathers, and ODALC’s photo booth churned out souvenirs left and right.

And the 2011 Oaklandish Innovators got their due on the big stage!

It would take days to list all of the sites, sounds, and tastes that made up the fair — but some of our favorite photos from the day can give you an idea. Check Facebook for the full set!
