Despite the cloudy weather, Clement and Arguello Streets were bustling yesterday during the first Sunday Streets in the Inner Richmond — the first Sunday Streets to come to the west side’s neighborhood streets. (The other events have all been in Golden Gate Park and on the Great Highway.)

With the event tied in with Clement’s on-street farmer’s market, which launched a few months ago, the throngs of humans were no surprise. Less expected were the llamas.

Arguello, a residential street, wasn’t quite as lively as Clement, though removing the cars certainly made it more kid-friendly and provided a much quieter, safer connection to walk and bike between the Presidio and Golden Gate Park.
