On March 3, 1968 the Grateful Dead played a free show on their now legendary flat bed truck as part of the Haight Street Fair. Jim Marshall was there and captured many photographs that day, several of which were included in the Live Dead album sleeve artwork.
The following day Jerry Carroll described the event for the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "A four-block stretch of fabled Haight Street yesterday was voluntarily surrendered to thousands of hippies and hippie-watchers. And the hippies did what they do best; they transformed the street into a sunny arcade of pleasure, celebrating the now with unqualified exuberance. The Grateful Dead’s full-throated roar drowned out a monotonous burglar alarm at one end of the street; the Tracy’s Coffee and Doughnuts people rolled their jukebox out on the sidewalk; and countless trios and quartets formed and dissolved in between."
