Put on your Easter bonnet and head over to San Francisco's 17th Annual Union Street Easter Parade & Spring Celebration. The event celebrates and showcases the diverse community of San Francisco and features food served in an outdoor bistro setting by some of Union Street's best restaurants.
A variety of children's and family activities are the focus of the event and include; large inflatable bounces, kids rides and games, a climbing wall, a hands-on children's activities area, costumed characters, a petting zoo, pony rides and entertainment from some of the Bay Area's best musicians.
For the past 16 years the event has been known as the Biggest Little Parade in San Francisco. Over the years the parade has grown and in 2005 there were 65 units entered and over 30,000 attendees, all of which reflected the unique community of the Bay Area.
The celebration and parade take place on Union Street between Gough and Fillmore Streets in San Francisco. Union Street is San Francisco's premier shopping district with typical historic San Francisco architecture.
The event is not your average Street Fair or formal Parade. It can best be described as wonderful, wacky, elegant and fabulous, with everything from roller-blading cows and creative self-propelled mini-floats to garden areas, sophisticated fashions and beautiful classic and art cars. It's a special event for the entire family.
