The Biggest Year Yet for Sunday Streets Kicks Off at the Embarcadero

The fifth and biggest year of Sunday Streets launches at the Embarcadero this weekend, opening up the street for everyone to enjoy a car-free waterfront from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Bay.

Just look at all the stuff that can happen once the traffic is gone: roller disco and a rock climbing wall return at the wharf along with free bike rentals and tune-ups and bike lessons for kids from the SF Bicycle Coalition. There will also be live music and performances by the Sardine Family Circus, zumba lessons, YMCA kid’s programs, a bouncy basketball toss, an inflatable obstacle course, kite lessons, and more.

The date for Sunday Streets’ return to Chinatown and North Beach has been also announced for August 26, when Grant Avenue will be turned into a pedestrian paradise once again.

The fun starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. — see you out there.
