SAN FRANCISCO — The Japantown 110th Anniversary Community Family Picnic will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Old Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park.
Old Speedway Meadow stretches back from the parking lot along the east side of 41st Avenue/Chain of Lakes Boulevard, between MLK and JFK drives. There is no sign marking Old Speedway Meadow, but the parking lot is visible from the street.
It is in “kansha,” with gratitude, that a community picnic celebrates 110 years.
Pack a picnic basket. Bring a dessert to share. Gather with family, friends and community for a day of food, games for all, entertainment and fun.
Enjoy hot dogs provided midday by the San Francisco Nisei Fishing Club and the San Francisco JACL. Sign up for the J-Town’s Got Talent Karaoke and Lip Sync Contest. Get your 50/50 Raffle tickets.
