Event Details

On the 104th anniversary of San Francisco’s 1906 great earthquake and fire, come remember at the official Wreath Laying and Commemoration at 5:11am on April 18, 2010 at Lotta’s Fountain on Market Street.

The celebration, which takes place each year with the dwindling number of survivors of the quake, generally begins with a moment of silence and wreath laying and then is followed by a visit to just north of Dolores Park at Church and 20th streets to paint in gold the fire hydrant that saved the Mission District churches in 1906.

The final activity will be a documentary film screening at 10:30 a.m. at the Westin St. Francis about a survivor who passed away two years ago. The screening is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
