San Francisco’s grandest Easter morning tradition gets under way at 6:30 am on Sunday, April 20, 2014 at the annual Sunrise Service at Mount Davidson Cross. This year’s citywide celebration atop the city’s highest peak marks the 92nd anniversary of the event.

Civic leaders taking part in the citywide event include SF Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White and Supervisor Malia Cohen. The program also features an SF Firefighters Color Guard and musical performances by Voice of Victory and Lynne Miller of The House of Bagpipes.

Local clergy will be presiding at the non-denominational service that will include an Easter message delivered by Gerald Mann of Sunset Ministry.

America’s largest cross will be illuminated by spotlights totaling 48,000 watts on the evening of Saturday, April 19, 2014, shining as a beacon for Easter morning pilgrims.

Special bus service begins at 5:15 am and runs every 15 minutes from Forest Hill Station to the park gate located at the intersection of Lansdale Avenue, Myra Drive and Dalewood Way – two blocks south of Portola Drive. Call 673-MUNI for further transit information.
