Sorry, but I must give this a neg. Underage drunks, trashing Civic Center, no control from the organizers; an excuse for being drunk & dumb!

Wiki

San Francisco LoveFest (now known as San Francisco LovEvolution) is an electronic dance music parade and festival that occurs annually in San Francisco in late September and early October. The parade includes 28 floats and starts at San Francisco's 2nd and Market Streets. The parade continues all the way to San Francisco Civic Center Plaza for a giant outdoor dance club with famous DJs. The 2008 parade drew over 120,000 people.

Modeled after Germany’s annual Love Parade, the San Francisco LoveFest has grown year after year and continues to build worldwide recognition. Loveparade originated in Berlin in 1989 after the fall of the Berlin Wall, but in 2003, the city denied the parade a permit and the event moved to San Francisco. Last year, when German organizers were able to secure permits back in Berlin, North American organizers decided to continue their own event here and dubbed it the LoveFest. San Francisco's LoveFest is also followed by an official after-party known as LoveFest After Party. Three other cities around the world sponsor similar events every year.

"Now more than ever we need to take over the streets and City Hall to express and share the values of culture, peace, love, unity, and respect," said Joshua Smith, SF LoveFest founding board member. "There is no better time for an event of this scale and intention. Our community needs to come together, enjoy life and hold onto the good things."
