Sunday Streets returns this weekend with penguin theme 

While San Francisco’s weather has been quite chilly this summer, it still hasn’t reached Antarctic levels, although inhabitants of that frigid icecap will be the focus of this weekend’s Sunday Streets event.

The popular street-closure program will take place in Golden Gate Park and along the Great Highway, connecting the California Academy of Sciences and the San Francisco Zoo, two destinations renowned for their penguin attractions.

With those spots bookending the event, this weekend’s Sunday Streets closure has been dubbed “Penguin to Penguin.”

The street closures begin at 10 a.m. Sunday, with the event ending at 3 p.m. During that time, John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park will be closed to automobile traffic west of Crossover Drive, while a small portion of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on the western edge of the park will also be shut down. The Great Highway will be closed to motorists from Lincoln Boulevard to Sloat Boulevard.

This weekend’s Sunday Streets, which opens up thoroughfares to bicyclists, pedestrians and others, is the seventh such event this year. There are two more remaining in 2010.
