Calling all hippies and wannabe hippies.

Even if you weren't born yet during the Summer of Love, you'll get your chance this summer.

Taos, N.M., is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the iconic counterculture film "Easy Rider" with its own Summer of Love.

Never mind Easy Rider had a shockingly violent ending.

The Taos Summer of Love was kicked off yesterday by actor and Easy Rider director Dennis Hopper, who shot part of the movie there.

Events planned for this summer in Taos include a "hippie homecoming" parade, art shows, concerts and costume contests.

Don't forget your love beads.
