Union Street Spring Celebration & Easter Parade

One of the best events scheduled for Easter in San Francisco is the Union Street Spring Celebration and Easter Parade. This annual event offers a variety of fun family activities and features the food of some of Union Street's best restaurants.

Kids will enjoy the large inflatable bounce houses, a climbing wall, and dozens of hands-on children's activities. During the event, your kids will also have a great time at the petting zoo, taking a pony ride, and mingling with several costumed characters.

Several Union Street restaurants will serve their delicacies to attendees in an outdoor bistro setting.

Another highlight of the event is the Easter Parade. The parade begins at 2 PM and showcases the eclectic community of San Francisco.

This event is held on Union Street in San Francisco's Marina district. You will find the festivities between Gough and Fillmore streets.
