Event Details

One lonely working fire hydrant in the Mission District helped saved the city’s churches after the 1906 Earthquake. Every year on the anniversary of the quake the hydrant receives a fresh coast of gold paint in tribute.

This celebration at Church and 20th begins approximately 5:40am after the Wreath Laying at Lotta’s Fountain.
