Transcript Si. Fest "West Fest 2001" tempts thousands or Houstonians to spend their weekend in exile Celebrating its second year in exile, the Westheimer Street Festival welcomed hundreds of Houstonians to enjoy music, food and fun for a weekend in May. The festival stretches for a mile down Allen Parkway and was packed with various booths containing crafts, food, drinks and palm reading. More than 70 bands performed on various stages at the festival that has become known as "West Fest." The music that provided a soundtrack to the festival included alternative, rock, rap, techno and other eclectic musical styles. Other forms of entertainment available included breakdancing and X-treme sports demonstrations. Contests were held for the enjoyment of both sexes with a wet t-shirt contest for the men and a mens fine ass contest for the women. And as always, the highlight of the festival is Miss West pageant. In the pageant, numerous drag queens vie for the crown and title of Miss West Fest 2001. West Fest also offers educational programs to enlighten festival visitors. A discussion was held on "The Future of Marijuana" with Dr. Joel Hockman, law professor Buford Terre, Jerry Epstein of the Drug Policy Forum of Texas and Steve Nolan, president of Houston NORML. A heated debate was also featured between Bv: Ashly Alberto George Washington and George W Bush. The ex-president and current president debated citizens rights to grow and use the marijuana plant. The sometimes risque nature of West Fest doesn't stop many from making the festival a family event. There is plenty of entertainment set up for children. For instance, rock climbing, a moon walk, slides and swings were all made available for children to enjoy. West Fest has had a long history with Houston and is looked forward to by many. The festival has most recently changed its title to the Westheimer Street Festival in Exile due to its change in location two years ago from Montrose to Allen Parkway. The Westheimer Street Festival began about 25 years ago as a block party but grew into a neighborhood event in Montrose.The festival was forced to change locations two years ago because the city council failed to grant festival promoters street closure permits because residents no longer wanted the event to take place near their homes. Where the Westheimer Street Festival takes place isn't as important to Houstonians as the fact that it does take place because it is a fun and entertaining event. In exile or not, Houstonians will follow the West Fest to any location to enjoy good music, good food and good fun. The band Gel was one of the /*" many entertainers that rocked ' festival patrons at West Fest. Photo by Ashly Alberto [28 8| 2881 Community A vendor straightens jewelry at her booth.
