The 99th annual ‘Opening Day on the Bay’ Parade will take place on April 24th from noon to 2PM. This is a unique opportunity to see the annual decorated boat parade that sails close to the shore so that land-based spectators can view from almost anywhere along SF’s northern shoreline from Crissy Field, along the Marina Green and to Pier 39. The Blessing of the Fleet is from 10:30 am to noon in Raccoon Strait. Anyone can also purchase a ticket to cruise the parade on PICYA’s ‘Hornblower Spirit.’ Tickets are $80 until March 31st, and $85 after that. Purchase tickets here.
