It's that time of year again! San Francisco Fleet Week is in full force, and we're excited to be a part of it as the official ridesharing partner. With a spew of events lined up, it's bound to be an exciting weekend in the city. Request a Lyft ride and check out some of our favorites.
With three different show options, the air shows are hard to miss (and hear). Catch the Blue Angels and more on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from 12PM - 4PM. Pro tip: Some of the best viewing locations include Marina Green, the Presidio, Crissy Field, or Pier 39.
Stop by the Embarcadero and take a tour of the ships that our Navy and Coast Guard call home. These tours will be open to the public all weekend long from 9AM - 4PM. During the tour you can interact with Sailors, Coasties, and Marines alike and see first hand what life overseas is like. Heads up, lines for the tour can get extremely long, so come early and be prepared.
Parade of Ships
If you're more of an 'observe from a distance' kind of person, the Parade of Ships may be the event for you. Catch the spectacular show on Friday from 10AM - 12PM. Ships will enter beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning front row seats for the parade are plentiful.
Bark at the Park
As the saying goes, "Not all heroes wear capes." In fact, some have big brown eyes, a leash, and stand on all fours. Help Fleet Week and the San Francisco Park of Emergency Management honor our K-9 Heroes at Dobuce Park on Saturday from 11AM - 1PM. For an added bonus, be sure to stop by our Lyft tent at the event. Our team will be there handing out Lyft swag while supporting our four-legged heroes.
High School Band Challenge
If you enjoy the music scene, join our Lyft team again at Golden Gate Park for the High School Band Challenge on Monday from 10AM - 2PM. Take in the patriotic melodies provided by the Marine U.S. Corps Band and elite high school bands from all around the Bay Area.
However you choose to celebrate this year's exciting Fleet Week lineup, be sure to be safe and take a Lyft. Enjoy your weekend, San Francisco!
