Scenes from Sunday Streets Western Addition

The scene at Pierce and Fulton, with City Hall in the background. Photos by Bryan Goebel.

An estimated 10,000 people turned out to celebrate Sunday Streets in the Western Addition, NOPA, Fillmore and Alamo Square neighborhoods yesterday. By all indications, the event was a success, and the weather, well, perfect. And we’re in for another treat this week.

For the second time in Sunday Streets history, San Franciscans will get to experience two events back to back, as Sunday Streets brings the car-free fun to Chinatown and North Beach, along Grant Street, this weekend.

What was your favorite moment at Sunday Streets yesterday? See more photos below the break.

Grove Street was packed with people. The SFBC set up its Freedom from Training Wheels tent and workshop, just a few blocks from the Grove Street Farmer's Market.

    It was a fun afternoon and tool my mind off what happened 10 years ago. I got up early , watched all of it “as it happened” (and as it happened for me, having been there) but to go out and then see why the City By The Bay can sometimes kick ass, and remind me why I had to return, was truly a way to be happy and to tell the terrorists to go f*ck off. A wonderful event organized by wonderful folks.
