Get out that sunscreen — or a parka — the Sunday Streets 2012 line-up was announced yesterday, with the big kick-off happening on March 11th along the Embarcadero. The family/bike/pedestrian-friendly event runs every month through October, and will hit the Mission on four Sundays this year, along with the addition of a date in the Outer Mission/Excelsior area.

Sunday Streets will also be returning to Chinatown, where it might be expanded this year, along with Bayview and the Western Addition, and the Great Highway/Golden Gate Park Sunday features a new route through the park. We were bummed to see that the Tenderloin/Civic Center neighborhoods were left off the list this year though.

Here's the schedule, which is subject to change:

  • March 11: Embarcadero- Season kick off
  • April 15: Great Highway/Golden Gate park- new route through the park
  • May 6: Mission
  • June 3: Mission
  • July 1: Mission
  • July 22: Bayview
  • August 5: Mission
  • August TBA: Chinatown
  • September 9: Western Addition/N. Panhandle Alamo Square
  • October 21: Outer Mission/Excelsior

Sunday Streets has come a long way since it's inception in 2008, which started off with just two annual events. Here's hoping it'll eventually become a weekly thing.
