Featured groups from throughout the Bay Area’s Irish community including schools, youth organizations, labor unions, cultural groups, as well as the San Francisco Police and Fire, will proudly march up Market Street.
3. The Mr.Marina Competition (March 19, 2014 7:00pm) Regency Ballroom – 1300 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco
If you have never been to the Mr.Marina Competition, you are missing out! It is a great way to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and be entertained by guys living up to the stereotype of the metro man found in the Marina District! Here is one of my favorite videos to give you an idea…
4. Bay to Breakers 2014 (May 18, 2014 )
San Francisco’s Bay to Breakers is the oldest consecutively run annual footrace in the world, a staple to the City by the Bay since May 1912. With a starting point near the San Francisco Bay, a few blocks from The Embarcadero, the 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. A quintessential San Francisco experience for 102 years, the race is interwoven into the fabric of the city and is a true reflection and celebration of life between the breakers and the Bay. The 2014 edition will take place on Sunday, May 18.
