A Field Guide to South Florida Hippies at Greynolds Park's Love-In

While some believe flower children vanished with the advent of the Internet, for many, the Age of Aquarius lives on. Commonly known as hippies, these patchouli-scented throwbacks spread the love wherever they roam. Creatures of the counterculture, they're most commonly discovered west of the Mississippi -- in the streets of Haight-Ashbury, the sands of Venice and the boardwalk of Santa Cruz. But occasionally, plastic peace signs and Grateful Dead tunes can yet be found in the swamps of South Florida.

So, Cultist took to the site of the Greynolds Park Love-In this weekend, determined to spot and classify these rare birds for our curious readers.
