This Sunday, the city of San Francisco will be celebrating the 75th Birthday party of the Famous Golden Gate Bridge.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to make their way to the iconic landmark for the daylong Festival. The Festival itself will take plaxe at Crissy Field. The bridge will also be closing at night for an hour to accommodate a 9:30 p.m. fireworks show.
Sadly, northern San Francisco and southern Marin County are looking at a potential traffic nightmare.
It is encouraged that people attending the festival use public transportation, walk or bike to the event so they dont have to endure the traffic. Furthermore, no public parking will be available at or around the festival site or the Golden Gate bridge itself on Sunday.
Through all of this excitement, Golden Gate Ferry workers announced they will end their one-day strike and return to work Sunday morning. This is just in time to provide more service across the bay. That’s about 35 more workers lending a hand.
The Golden Gate Bridge will be closed from 9 to 10 p.m. on Sunday for the fireworks show, because some of the skyrockets will be shot directly from the bridge.
