I feel like I'm doing a few of these "fair photos", as of late, but it gives me a nice excuse to go to some of these events, which I otherwise might not attend. Anyway, the Up Your Alley Fair was pretty cool. It's often described as Folsom's (raunchier) little brother. Folsom takes up a full 7 city blocks along Folsom St, while Dore Alley is just one (both fairs go onto the side streets as well).
At first you might think that's pretty small, and at 11:00AM (right when it officially starts), it is small, but by 12:00 there's some pretty cool stuff going on (demos, dancing, etc.); by 1:00, I was wondering what the hell I was thinking calling it small, and by 3:00, well, it was like Folsom at 3PM.
Anyway, I was motivated to go because I heard Dore Alley has "...more animal masks, ropes and chains than in a kink.com production" and is "...full of vendors to satisfy your needs–so long as it’s bondage, animal roleplay...", and there was indeed quite a presence of human pups from leather to rubber to furry. It was really fun to watch them play together (short video below). Alas, there were nno ponies that I could find except this pink pony:

There was a lot of puppy play (and playing puppies):

I'm not sure what animal he is, but I'm guessing werewolf:

This is the animal that got the dancing started:

I saw these guys spinning a pair of leather pride flags and I had to take a little video (no human animals, but some really nice work - I wonder if they also do poi):
