The Art Kids of San Diego will be offering face painting to everyone for tips! The TAKOSDC meet once a week for lessons throughout the year at a public location throughout the south bay area. The program is supported by one person throughout the year, the director and founder of the organization. It is his dream to help teach any artist who desires, the way to become a professional artist as a career.  They are provided lessons and the basic art materials without any charge. Working out in the open air helps stimulate the creative juices and allows the kids the chance of being seen by the public. It also gets them used to working in the public eye and provides the confidence they need with their art. Come by and support teaching young people to be great artists!

Rad Hatter will be there to help everyone make a RAD PARTY HAT! Choose a Rad Bag Hat of your own and step up to the Hat Bar to decorate your festive memento using all sorts of embellishments including ribbon, glitter, feathers, beads, recycled items, and so much more.  The process of making Rad Hats is just as fun as what happens next: wearing them!  Be sure you have a camera ready for the priceless pictures. Don’t miss out – this is a great time for both kids and adults! And when your done, leave them a great tip for offering so much fun and making your day!

Bicycling routes along the bay are fantastic so if you want to bicycle to and from South Bay Pride, we have made it easy with a bicycle check station just inside the G Street entry. Our attendants will let you through the closure on G street with your bike so that you can access it easily!  Check your bikes and then enjoy a great time before picking it up again and heading for a leisurely ride home.  The H Street Trolley Station is just 1 mile away and the E Street station has a 2 mile long gorgeous bike path to the park.  Here is a map of the bike paths and the Trolley schedule.
