The official starting time for this is 2:00pm, although you will want to ensure you arrive much earlier than that if you want a choice spot along the parade route. While waiting for the floats and bands to make their way down Union Street, you can enjoy food from one of the many famous and beautiful restaurants in the area who will transform their traditional table service into a classic bistro setup.
The Union Street Spring Celebration will also feature plenty of live music from The Raytones and Cheer SF, additional competitions like The Egg Roll, The Egg Toss, and The Bunny Hop, and the chance to purchase unique and handmade arts and crafts from vendors like:
- Lorna Jane
- Less is More Jewelry
- Tahoe Wood Maps

All this and more awaits you at the Union Street Spring Celebration and Easter Parade. See you there!
