Street Fair Entrance Fees to Save Street Fairs

New, 5 comments

As city departments feel increasingly cash-strapped and pass fees on to street fairs, so should street fairs feel increasingly cash-strapped and pass those fees on to pleasure seekers. Supe Ross Mirkarimi thinks it's only fair, anyway, that the fairs (which are getting "nickel-and-dimed to death") be able to charge for attendance. There'll be a few caveats, like allowing neighbors to attend free, but it looks like the doors might just be flung open to a brave new world of ticketed fairs, starting with the Civic Center.
