47th Annual Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival

Bring Your Own Big Wheel
Everyone's favorite bike race returns to the crookedest street in the city, Vermont Street. Watch contestants risk humiliation and injury on the world's smallest big wheels. for glory and actual trophies. This event can get very crowded with limited views and porta porties are scarce. And if you leave trash behind or trespass on people’s property you’ll risk having the neighbors complain and the event permit canceled. Be careful. Get your big wheel on.
2014 Union Street Easter Parade & Festival
It's not spring until we have the annual Union Steet Spring & Easter Parade. Head down to Cow Hollow for one of the wackiest parades in the city. How wacky you ask? Two words: Rollerblading cows. Enough said. More Information.
Mount Davidson Sunrise Easter Service
You might think that Twin Peaks is the highest point in San Francisco, but then you'd be wrong. A little south of Twin Peaks sits Mount Davidson. Not only is it the tallest point in the city, but it has the biggest cross in America (a sight to see itself) and a gorgeous view of the city. There's no better place to have an Easter service.
