Re: Reason for renfairs
- I just got out the program I got from the "3rd Annual"
RPF, and it is dated 1968. The first one in 1966 was
in Agoura. The second one was in 1967 in Orange
County, somewhere. I believe that they had to shut
down the fair early because the Orange County sheriffs
were constantly harassing them because they thought
that the RPF were all pot-smoking, drug-dealing
hippies. The third one moved back to Agoura because
the LA County sheriffs were much more open minded
about the fair.
