75 Years of the Golden Gate Bridge
This Sunday, if weather (and the temperament of a 4 year-old) permits, we’ll be heading to Pier 39 for the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Since the Art Deco Society of California will have a presence there that day, they’re looking for members to attend in period clothing. Penelope will be either sporting a 1930s feedsack dress that I bought on Etsy years ago or the Shirley Temple dress from a Monterey antique store. Me, I’m liking to be wearing my 1930s knitwear outfit that is begging to be paired with my awesome green hat (that I’ve never worn)
If you’re in the Bay Area, be sure to check out the festivities!
Take in magnificent views of the Golden Gate, learn about the Bridge’s history and significance, and enjoy the national parklands anchored by the famed span. The Golden Gate Festival will feature activities including history and educational presentations, a display of cars from 1937 to the present, an historic watercraft parade, music and dance stages, art installations, films, and displays by corporate and media partners. At about 9:30 pm the weekend celebration will conclude with a spectacular 75th anniversary fireworks display and grand finale. Other venues and activities include:
And because I can’t get enough of these mood boards, here’s a little 1937/Golden Gate Bridge inspiration.
