The days are getting longer and the fabulous San Francisco tradition of Sunday Streets is back in action. Since 2008, Sunday Streets has encouraged residents to enjoy the beautiful city outdoors! Originated in Bogotá, Colombia as “Ciclovía,” a day of free, healthy activities, Sunday Streets intends to promote community in public streets.
The event website has this statement to share. “Sunday Streets are events that encourage recreation, community activities and fun in San Francisco. Sunday Streets closes stretches of city streets to automobile traffic, and opens them to people for several hours on a various Sundays throughout the year, so participants can enjoy a large, temporary, public space where they can bike, walk, run, dance, do yoga, or do any other physical activity. Non-profit and health organizations offer free activities and share information about their services during the event.”
Explore a new neighborhood, meet potential clients, neighbors and friends as an event volunteer. It’s great for the whole family with parents permission, anyone can participate after a short training course. Are you a community leader? Sponsor a booth or an activity.

I look forward to seeing you there! Happy Sunday Fun Day!
