2018 Fiesta on the Hill
Thurgood Marshall High School's marching band members led the noontime parade, with costumed revelers weaving up and down Cortland. There was a great variety of artisan booths, Bay Area businesses and scrumptious food. Neighborhood Center staff, board members, and volunteers were sharing information about BHNC programs. Cortland merchants and businesses donated terrific raffle prizes—including the grand prize, the awesome kids bike from New Wheel! The San Francisco Community Music Center Senior Choir had us all singing along, followed by the Bayonics' Reggae sound, and Bernal’s own Susana y su Orquesta Adelante closing out the day.
