As summer draws to its inevitable end, Noe Valley celebrated the high season in true San Franciscan style—with its 9th annual SummerFEST. The five-hour celebration, sponsored in part by The Agency, is a collaboration between the Community for the Noe Valley Town Square, the Noe Valley Association, and the Noe Valley Merchants and Professionals Association, and drew children and adults of all ages for an afternoon of fun, family-friendly activities in Noe Valley Town Square.

The festive event offered an opportunity for the community to come together and for local merchants to share their appreciation. Free activities included a petting zoo, face painting, Pop-a-Shot basketball, Connect-4, a bounce house, balloon artist, and live music by local musicians Skillet Licorice. The Merchants’ Hayride, a Noe Valley tradition, took passengers on a nostalgic ride in a horse-drawn wagon down 24th Street between Castro and Sanchez Streets. Agents and staff from The Agency’s Noe Valley office were also on hand to dish out free scoops of Mitchell’s ice cream.

The Agency was proud to sponsor this year’s SummerFEST. View more photos from the event below.
