Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic has been a tradition in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park since 1988. In addition to being San Francisco’s biggest and best annual vintage car gathering, the event also raises thousands of dollars annually for children with developmental disabilities. This year, the San Francisco Parks & Rec department has denied their permit, thus putting the future of the Picnic in jeopardy. There is an online petition to help keep this unique event going and a City Hall meeting planned on Feb. 18th to discuss the situation. You can find out more at the Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic blog.
