In support of a healthy San Francisco Bay I want to inform you of a fun and exciting event coming up May 22nd!
The Bay Area's Premier On-the-Water, Multi-Sport Event
Celebrating a Clean and Healthy San Francisco Bay
The Bay Parade is an annual celebration of Baykeeper's successes in making San Francisco Bay safe and enjoyable to recreate in. Join hundreds of other participants on Sunday, May 22, 2016 for a fun and active day in San Francisco Bay. You'll make it to the big screen when the parade's finale is broadcast on the Jumbotron at the start of the Giants home game.
New! The Golden Rivet Award recognizes the fastest solo swimmer, fastest swim team, and biggest parade fundraiser from each year's Bay Parade. Winners' names will be engraved below a Golden Gate Bridge rivet cast in solid gold. Winners will be invited to join the home plate ceremony opening the Giants evening home game on May 22. See the Golden Rivet.
The Bay Parade swim is 6.5 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge to McCovey Cove. Participate as a timed solo swimmer, timed four-person relay team, or open relay team. $100 registration fee, plus $200 fundraising minimum.
