Did you know:Â the Golden Gate Bridge turns 75 years old this year? Yes, thatâ€™s right; it was first built in 1937! There will be various tributes and educational events happening all year in its honor, but the main celebration happens on the weekend of May 26.Â There will be vintage 1937 cars and boats on display, music, dancing, and food (gourmet food trucks perhaps?) all along the northern waterfrontâ€”includingÂ Pier 23 and Fishermanâ€™s Wharf. There will also be walks, talks, bicycle trips and a film night in theÂ Presidio. The big event,Â Golden Gate Festival, will be held on Sunday, May 27th, with a firework display grand finale at 9:30 pm.
