This weekend, there’s something for both adults and children alike to enjoy while visiting Golden Gate Park.
Theater Performance at de Young Museum
An outing for all ages, but specifically geared towards younger visitors of the park, deYoung Museum opens its doors for a free event on Friday, May 14, 2010. Visit the museum at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy StageWrite: Super Hero Moves & Recycled Grooves – Short Plays by Short People. Inspired by works of art at deYoung, the evening will consist of seven original plays penned by fifth graders that attend Starr King Elementary.
The performances will then come to life with the help of professional actors. The TimeOuts & DJ Brotha Sub will supply music for the event. For more details and to make reservations, visit www.stagewrite.org.
Bay To Breakers
Thousands of runners will take to the San Francisco streets on Sunday, May 16, 2010 at 8 a.m. to enjoy the ING Bay to Breakers – an annual event that blends sections of Golden Gate Park into its course. The 99-year-old tradition is comprised of a 12k (7.46 mile) run known as the largest and oldest footraces in the world.
The course includes the northeast end of the downtown area close to The Embarcadero (also known as the “bay” side of the city) and takes runners to the west end of the city, and then onto the “breakers” of Ocean Beach.
The Bay to Breakers is a sight to see with participants that range from professional athletes to costumed characters. Fees to participate in the Bay to Breakers are between $35 and $44. For more information, call (415) 777-1630 or visit their website.
