This weekend is Easter, and no one does this holiday quite like San Franciscans. Get out your Easter basket, dust off your big wheel, iron out that loin cloth – it’s time for the SF Easter Events Round-up.
Here are our picks for the best events going on around town this weekend:
Put on those bunny ears and zip up those furry suits for this rowdy pub crawl down Polk Street. Think SantaCon but with – you guessed it – the Easter Bunny. Creative and unique costumes are encouraged.
Saturday, April 7, Starting at 1pm, McTeague’s Saloon
Union Street Spring Celebration & Easter Parade
Adults and kids alike will enjoy this family-oriented Easter event down Union Street in the Marina. Restaurants lining the route will be holding special outdoor seating, there will be bouncy houses, rides and games, a petting zoo, live music and there’ll be a prize for the best Easter bonnet.
Sunday, April 8, 10am – 5pm (parade at 2pm), Union Street -Gough to Fillmore
Easter Sunday Butcherfest 2012
Learn how to butcher an entire goat. Chef Rick DeBaord of Cafe’ Rouge will do the demonstration and there’ll be BBQ, including a goat ham sandwich, goat sausage and a curried goat flatbread. Well, at least the Easter Bunny will be spared.
Sunday, April 8, 3-7pm, Bloodhound
Bring Your Own Big Wheel
One of the craziest events of the year is here- BYOBW. Grab that big wheel and ride that thing down the most crooked street in San Francisco (you know, the one tourists don’t know about). Remember no rubber wheels are allowed – ride safely!
Sunday, April 3, 4pm, 20th Street @ Vermont
Pumps & Circumstance
Is that you Hunky Jesus? My, you are so very handsome. Decide for yourself at the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgences signature event. There will be a chidlren’s egg hunt at 11am and then the adult fun starts with entertainment, the Easter Bonnet and Hunky Jesus contest and, of course, the best people watching in town.
