The streets of Mission Terrace took Halloween to a whole other level this year! From the haunted house on Cotter Street that has been around for 30 years, to the blocked-off streets of Delano, San Gabriel, and Otsego, Mission Terrace is turning into a Halloween destination for the kiddos.
This year, the residents of Delano Street, secured a grant to enhance the festivities even further. In addition to the trick-or-treating, activities included a photo booth, street games, a fire truck, and haunted house. More than 300 people were in attendance this year... triple the amount from just a year ago!
Sponsored by Roxie Food Center, the Mission Terrace Improvement association was able to put on another wonderful neighborhood parade and picnic. Mary Harris was our Grand Marshall this year, leading the parade on top of a San Francisco Fire Department ladder truck. Very special guests included Mayor London Breed, District Supervisor Ahsha Safai, and State Senator Scott Weiner.
The parade started at 100 Capistrano, winded through the Mission Terrace neighborhood, and ended with a picnic at Balboa Park. The Neighborhood Empowerment Network was there to help educated the neighborhood (via a fun game) be prepared for emergencies, and entertainment was there for the kiddos.
Special thanks to our amazing volunteers including the Cayuga Improvement Association.
What a great day!
Lawn chairs, popcorn, kids, pups, soda, laughter, blankets, and cheers were all part of a fantastic 2nd annual Movie Night in the Park. Special thanks to the Dark Horse
Inn for sponsoring this event for the neighborhood.
On Saturday, September 30th, over 200 people gathered in Balboa Park, for our first Movie In The Park event. Disney's "Wreck It Ralph" was shown, and is a story about video game characters who are misunderstood, and the perceived villain ends up being the unlikely hero for this delightful family movie.
In addition to enjoying this hilarious movie, the event also included; popcorn, raffle prizes, and an all-around good time with the community.
Thanks to Sean and Andrea of the Dark Horse Inn and the Excelsior Outer Mission Merchants and the office of Supervisor Safai for making this event such a great success.
And... $200 was raised for Unidos por Puerto Rico in order to help with hurricane relief efforts. For more details about the event, and to get the recipe for the sauce, lick HERE.
Hooray! After years and much neighborhood support, the north-west triangle of Balboa Park, along the upper block of Havelock Street, was approved as a mixed-use off-leash dog-play area. The approval came at the SF Recreation & Park Commissioners Meeting on July 20th, 2017. Special thanks to Abby Nguy for her leadership on this endeavor, Supervisor Safai for his support, and the numerous neighbors who voiced their support and made this happen. Despite record-breathing temperatures, several dog-guardians of Mission Terrace, showed up for a celebration on Friday, September 1, 2017.
Further information on fences, signage, doggie-bag station, etc. will be coming soon. So bring your furry family member and help celebrate!
