The Summer of Love

It is time for Throwback Thursday! Take a step into our time machine as we journey back to 1967, the Summer of Love.

The Monterey Pop Festival was a kick-off for the Summer of Love. Disenfranchised by war and injustice, the flower children flocked to the banner led by the Beatle's Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Other groovy bands of the day included the Mamas and Papas, Grateful Dead, the Doors, and Jefferson Airplane.
