Under the afternoon sun today, Berkeley locals wander down a few pedestrian-only blocks of Telegraph Avenue, enjoying live music and street vendors.

On the last Sunday of every summer month, a monthly event called LastSundaysFest, turns Telegraph — for a four-block stretch between Bancroft and Dwight Ways — into an outdoor market, with vendors lining the sides of the street and passersby flooding the middle. Browsing customers can choose from usual fair grub, like kettle corn and snow cones, as well as other products, like bracelets made of twisted metal forks or organic produce delivered to your doorstep.

Between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. today, visitors can listen to live music, including a performance at 4 p.m. by a Led Zeppelin tribute band and another at 5 p.m. by Foxtails Brigade, a San Francisco-based music collective.
