The footprint was smaller at the October 3 Castro Street Fair, but people turned out to enjoy the fall afternoon and celebrate the LGBTQ neighborhood. The street fair included entertainment and a much-needed boost for businesses in the area. The late supervisor Harvey Milk, a gay man who owned a camera shop on Castro Street, organized the first Castro Street Fair in 1974 to drum up some excitement in the business district catering to the city's Eureka Valley area.
