Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon
June 12, 2016
Athletes come from around the country to participate in this popular San Francisco Event. The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon includes a 1.5-mile swim, an 18-mile bike ride, and an 8-mile run. One of the features of this Event that makes it unique is the chance to swim in the same waters that once provided an extra measure of security that helped make Alcatraz “escape proof.” But was it really escape proof? Some say inmates that tried to escape drowned in the icy waters, but their bodies were never found, so no one can be sure. During this Event, participants will have the chance to swim in the very same waters. Participation is capped at 2.000, so those who want to participate should register early.

Haight Ashbury Street Fair
June 12, 2016
Vendors will line the street of this historic neighborhood for the 38th annual Haight Ashbury Street Fair. Shop for arts and crafts while you stroll the streets of one of the City’s most well-known neighborhoods. The Battle of the Bands is another feature of this San Francisco Event that helps draw a huge crowd. Both established and emerging artists will perform on two stages. Eat, drink, shop, and mingle with locals during this popular Event.
