Who doesn’t like an event where you can party for a good cause? That’s exactly what you can do if you make it out to the Bay Parade Party. Since 1989, San Francisco Baykeeper has been working to promote new strategies and policies to protect the water quality of the San Francisco Bay. They’re quite the watchdogs when it comes to water quality in the bay, but just because they’re an authority figure doesn’t mean they can’t have fun. This weekend they invite swimmers, kayakers, rowers, SUPers, surfers, sailors, and all Bay enthusiasts to join their on-the-water parade to celebrate a healthy San Francisco Bay. This year’s course is shorter (starting at the Ferry Building and going to the ballpark) with a 1.5 mile swim, and 3.5 miles paddle. Costumes, decorated boats, noisemakers, and team rivalries encouraged, so you can think of this as an aquatic Bay to Breakers if you will.
Your participation supports Baykeeper's work for a healthy San Francisco Bay and the parade finale will be featured on the AT&T Park Jumbotron at the start of the Giants game. Hope to see you up there!
