San Francisco’s first “Sunday Streets” event of the year will be held along The Embarcadero this weekend.
In the recurring event, which will be held nine times in 2010 throughout the city, streets are closed to cars for a few hours to allow residents to safely explore new neighborhoods by foot.
This Sunday’s events will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along a 3.3-mile stretch of the Embarcadero, from China Basin in Mission Bay to Fisherman’s Wharf.
Events will include roller skate lessons and performances by David Miles, the “Godfather of Skate,” a family fitness fair at Fisherman’s Wharf, and salsa lessons by Ava Apple and Rodolfo Guzman of The Latin Symbolics, a salsa performance group.
SFMTA executive director Nathaniel Ford planned to join Supervisor David Chiu and other officials today for a Sunday Streets kickoff event at 11:30 a.m. on the steps of City Hall.
A full schedule of this Sunday’s events, as well as a list of future Sunday Street days, is available at www.sundaystreetssf.com.
