Tommie Hall, 70, who has spent many years in the area, dropped by at the end of the day after a visit with his 93-year-old mother. “I guess they need to show force,” he said of the large number of police, acknowledging that there have been incidents here and there at the festival. “I know they don’t intimidate me,” Hall said, casually. “Maybe they do intimidate some people; some people intimidate them.” (Photo by Jabril Faraj)
