Paseo Artistico: October 2016 // San Francisco 2

 

Why?

The city wants to bring more Latinos to shop in the Mission District. The answer will become clearer on Saturday as the city launches a series of events to lure the Bay Area’s Latino population to the neighborhood that still has the highest concentration of Latinos in San Francisco.

The city has already dedicated the Calle 24th Latino Cultural District and is now focusing new efforts on Mission Street.

The events on Saturday include two showings of Selena at the Brava Theater (at 3 p.m. 7:30 p.m.) as well as a Low Rider extravaganza. The slick cars will be on display at 5 p.m. on 24th Street and at 6 p.m. they will cruise along Mission Street between 20th and Cortland.

The campaign is being run by the city’s office of Economic and Workforce Development.
