City packed with holiday weekend events

San Francisco streets normally brimming with automobiles will be replaced by walkers, bikers and festival-goers as The City plays host to a number of events on the long Labor Day weekend.

Starting at 9 a.m. Sunday, the Embarcadero will be transformed into a pedestrian paradise as The City experiments with the first rendition of its Sunday Streets plan, a program backed by Mayor Gavin Newsom to promote fitness.

For four hours, people are encouraged to bike, walk, Rollerblade, run or dance their way along the stretch of road that meanders from the Bayview to Chinatown along San Francisco Bay.

Sunday will also feature the Hairrison Street Fair, celebrating its fifth year in San Francisco. The fun starts at 11 a.m. and lasts until 6 p.m., with most of the action taking place on Harrison Street in The City’s SoMa district.

The long weekend’s activities wrap up Monday, when scores of talented cyclists converge in The City for the Il Giro Di San Francisco. Ten bicycle races are scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The races begin at Levi Strauss place on the Embarcadero.
