The Mission – San Francisco

Low Riders in the Mission

How incredibly awesome it was for me to be able to see with my 7-year-old a low rider car procession going by 19th street and Valencia, in The Mission District of San Francisco. The cars rode today April 12, 2014, together with bikers, dancers and marchers, as part of a post-birthday parade celebration in honor of  Cesar Chavez.

I felt like we were witnessing history in action and as if we were casts of the film La Mission.

I loved the parade and it was awesome to see, in this now gentrified hood, the traditional players of The Mission parade with so much pride and vibrancy.

Unfortunately my daughter missed it, but took her to Dandelion Chocolate for some hot cocoa as a consolation.

Gorgeous Parade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
