SAN FRANCISCO– Hundreds of kids went home tired and happy this afternoon after spending their day at Play Day on the Green, a free, annual family event hosted by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department and the San Francisco Parks Trust.
The event, held at Marina Green, included carnival rides, games, arts and crafts, giant inflatables and live entertainment. Raffle prizes, including SF Giants memorabilia and skateboards, were given to several lucky winners.
“We’re really proud of the family-friendly events we host throughout the year,” said Phil Ginsburg, general manager of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department. “It’s an opportunity everyone to get out and play and celebrate our parks.”
Recreation and Parks also hosts Spring Eggstravaganza in the spring, Back to Rec Night and ScareGrove in the fall, and its annual Holiday Tree Lighting in December.
