Mission Terrace celebrates another year of a fabulous 4th of July parade and picnic. Over 500 people (and a very impressive showing of festive dogs) attended this year.
The event included a parade lead by a classic cars, followed by a SF fire engine, kids on bike and trikes and wagons, dressed up dogs, and decked-out neighbors waving flags and wearing red, white, and blue. This year's parade had Rose Ann as our Marshall, and California Senator, Scott Weiner, leading the way.
The parade started at 100 Capistrano and wove its way through the Mission Terrace neighborhood, ending at Balboa Park, where picnic and entertainment were to be had. Picnickers had their choice of hamburgers or veggie burgers (with all the toppings), chips, and a beverage.
Magic Dan entertained the kiddos (as exhibited by their delighted squeals of joy!), kids got their faces painted, and people perused the classic cars.
Special thanks to Roxie's Market who donated food and drinks to feed the masses, the SFFD for their fabulous fire engine, the SFPD for protecting the parade goers, and the numerous volunteers needed to put on this event.
