The complainers against the festival are the Haight Ashbury Improvement Association, the Cole Valley Improvement Association, the Waller Street Association and the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association. They're requesting that a beer garden is established so all the drinkers can be in one isolated area, just like the one in the North Beach Festival. Festival organizers, however, don't quite think that would work for the festival and are starting to feel a little henpecked with all the complaining. Another request is to move the booths from the sidewalks onto the street to help merchants get more visibility.
In order for the fair to proceed, Haight Street Fair Board Director Robert Leon says they need to move fast to start securing the vendors. This is the big 30th Anniversary Fair too so they're all pretty geared up to throw this thing.
