The weather was perfect — not too hot, not too cold — and the Berkeley-Albany institution that is the Solano Stroll was a tremendous affair for the 41st straight year.

Billed as “one mile of free family fun,” the event saw a great big parade and tens of thousands of people ambling along Solano Avenue in North Berkeley and Albany, enjoying entertainment, conversations at the many booths, shopping at the dozens of retailers on the street, and great food and drink.

Many people stopped by the Berkeleyside booth to say hello and chat — it was a pleasure to see you. Enjoy these wonderful photos by our contributing photographer Nancy Rubin. (And view the full album.)
