The 2011 slate of Sunday Streets wraps up this weekend in the Mission District, bringing car-free space back to the ever-popular [2] Valencia and 24th Street route. This spring, an estimated 25,000 people came out for the year’s first installment of Sunday Streets in the Mission.

The event marks the end of a highly successful season for Sunday Streets as organizers continue to develop it into a permanent institution [3] and expand it into new areas [4].

“Sunday Streets represents one of the more significant and tangible ways that San Francisco is rethinking and transforming how we think of and use our public rights-of-way – using them for people to enjoy on bike and on foot, not just to pass through in a car,” said SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin. “Since the program began in 2008, Sunday Streets has evolved and improved with each event and grown each season to reach more neighborhoods across the city.”

The event will feature a host of activities. Here’s the list from the SFMTA:

See you out there!
