Little League Baseball Opening Day Parade
Saturday, 10:00 to 10:30 AM
While Spring Training has just kicked off for Major League Baseball, the next generation of potential MLB players will be celebrating their Opening Day this Saturday during the San Francisco Little League Opening Day Parade and Ceremony at the Presidio. A fun event for the families from across the entire league, this year's event will include team photos, a community picnic and a parade for all teams with over 85 decorated vehicles. Players get the opportunity to meet their new coaches and teammates while working together to decorate the parade vehicles before showing off their team spirit in the 30 minute parade through the Presidio into Cow Hollow and back.
How to Get There on Muni: Future All-Stars and their families can take the 28 19th Avenue, 30 Stockton, 41 Union, 43 Masonic, 45 Union/Stockton or the 76X Marin Headlands Express routes to near the start of the parade in the Presidio.
