The sun shines on Sunday Streets

Yesterday’s Sunday Streets, dubbed “Penguin to Penguin” because of its start at the Academy of Sciences and its end at the Zoo, brought out two great things in abundance – San Franciscans and sunshine.

Thousands came out to enjoy a car free Golden Gate Park and Great Highway, riding their bikes, rollerskating, skateboarding or just walking. At Lincoln and Great Highway there were dozens of vendors set up ranging from Clif Bar to Sports Basement to dog rescue organizations. There was plenty of live music, games for kids and cultural activities. Even a MUNI bus was parked for kids to explore and run around in.

Waiting at the end of the route at Sloat and Great Highway was another special surprise – a penguin mascot – who as you’ll see in the video, definitely had the moves.

Did you come out for Sunday Streets?

  1. I was there — it was my first Sunday Streets as a new San Francisco resident! I ran the route early while it was still pretty devoid of participants, but I was happy to see it filling up throughout the day, especially as the weather got nicer and nicer. 🙂 So fun!

  2. Awesome video and great music!! It really captured the range of everything that happened!

  3. @Average A – that’s great! What a fun way to get to know your new city. It’s beautiful out there, and it was nice to just wander around in the sunshine.
