July 13 – Richmond Sunday Streets

Richmond Sunday Streets is coming to our neighborhood on July 13th, 11am to 4pm. Sunday Streets is a car-free event, closing off miles of city streets, opening them up for people to participate in free activities and to get out and be active for the set duration.

Below is a map of the Sunday Streets route.

Arguello Blvd (from Lake St to Fulton) will be blocked off (no car access) and a no parking zone from 8am to 4pm. Unfortunately if cars are parked on Arguello, they will be towed. You may want to take that into consideration when coming to church for worship.

There will be four cross streets accessible for cars to pass through Arguello:
– California
– Geary
– Balboa
– Fulton

St. John’s will be participating by inviting people to participate in different prayer activities. Come for the fun!
