Streetsblog Summer Street Party

We’re getting very excited for the weekend, especially the second of two Sunday Streets
events in the Mission, this Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm. After you’ve
experience the streets freed from vehicular traffic noise and opened up
for walking and bicycling, roll/walk on over to Valencia Cyclery to
celebrate a certain blog we like.

If you enjoy good music, good people, and a creative re-purposing of a couple parking spaces, we’ve got your ticket, with DJ Deep
on his Trikeasauruss spinning some eminently danceable tunes (MJ
anyone?). We’re also happy to use this soiree to thank the wonderful
volunteers who make Sunday Streets possible. Without them we can’t
imagine the events going so well.

See you this Sunday in the streets!
