Events in and Around Brisbane - Not to be Missed!

The recent events in San Bruno have pointed out the need for personal preparedness. This makes Disaster Preparedness Day all the more pertinent, and necessary.

There will be local agencies and organizations in attendance that will be able to assist you and your families become better prepared. Don't miss this important opportunity. It only comes around once a year!

Speaking of annual events, the Brisbane Marina Sports & Import Car Festival is only 2 days away!

Sponsored by the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce, the day also features the Brisbane Lions Club "Sierra Point Prowl" - a fun run and walk along the Bay Trail. Walkers and Runners will receive a T-shirt and a meal ticket for only $15 per person or $50 for a family or group of 4. Registration begins at 9am and race starts at 10am. 100% of the entry fees go directly to scholarships, presented by the Chamber to aspiring, academically-strong, students in Brisbane. And what's a car festival without some outdoor barbecuing? Leave that to the Lions Club, who will be firing up the grill at 11am (this is where your meal ticket comes in handy!)and serving up their famous tri-tip hoagies. Thank you to the Brisbane Chamber for coordinating this great event, and to the 17 Brisbane businesses that are helping to make it happen!

Also, tomorrow is the last day of advance registration for your team to participate in the Brisbane History Scavenger Hunt and Outdoor Movie, sponsored by the Brisbane Dance Workshop. Click here for more information. Proceeds from next Saturday's scavenger hunt and movie will go towards BDW's ability to continue offering quality dance classes, instructors, and spring performances for Brisbane's littlest ones to enjoy and thrive in.

And lastly, a word of caution regarding traffic. On Monday night, 9/20, there will be a 49ers game at Candlestick Park starting at 5:30pm. With the high volume of cars that will be traversing Bayshore Blvd. and 101, you may want to plan your commute around the game.
