Yellow Submarine

Some of the young people in the 60's and early 70's opposed the Vietnam War. Many dodged the draft because they wouldn't fight in a war they didn't believe in. Almost half a century has passed, since these special people stood up for what they believed. Their goal was to promote peace, love and end the war.

Traveling in retro is cool. Come on dudes and chicks lets take a trip back to the 60's and early 70's. When things were groovy! Let your hair grow.  
We're traveling back in a yellow submarine. All aboard!

Second stop San Francisco 1967 “The Summer of Love” was summer of 1967 in San Francisco.   
            The Summer of Love was a social change also know as, " a generation gap" that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 young people united in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. San Francisco became the center of the hippie generation. This new generation of "hippies" had interest focused on music, psychoactive drugs, sexual freedom, creative expression, and politics. The Summer of Love became a important time period of the 1960s, as the free lifestyles and anti war demonstrations drew intense public attention.
