Downtown San Francisco is practically a village of museums. The ever expanding, four story SF MOMA, founded in 1935, overlooks the garden like Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where smaller performance spaces as well as cinema and gallery spaces exhibit contemporary works. Just west of Union Square is the small but impressive theater district half off day of performance tickets can be purchased at a kiosk in the Square . Across town, in windswept Golden Gate Park, is the newly re furbished De Young Museum, a temple to the arts. On a bluff in Lincoln Park, perched over only the most flabbergasting view of the Golden Gate the Legion of Honor, built in 1924 as a World War One memorial, this is where most of the city s old masters and ancient art is kept. The city loves to celebrate there s the notorious cross town run Bay to Breakers in May, the celebrated Pride Parade in June, the Latin American Carnival in the Mission, St. Patrick s Day and Cinco De Mayo are practically regional holidays and there s a street fair or festival somewhere almost every week.
