Lawn Party at Marina Green
Saturday, June 2, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
San Francisco's Biggest and Best All-Day Waterfront Party
presented by Hint Water
"What would it be like if Coachella was on the Marina Green for a day?"
"How crazy will I get at an outdoor party with unlimited drinking, bands, food trucks, fun girls, drinking games, hot guys and everything else awesome?"
These are questions you should be asking yourself for this Saturday afternoon (June 2nd).
Take a short walk down the hill from the Union Street Festival to the Marina Green for an open bar event with wine and beer while being entertained with live music, lawn games, and majestic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, all while supporting at-risk youth in the Bay Area and enjoying the famous Guardsmen hospitality.
This will be the most fun you've ever had on Marina Green. We rented out the entire Marina Green from the park service: all 8 acres, 1 mile in circumference. We're filling it with the best looking and most fun people from around San Francisco.
We will also be holding the First Annual Guardsmen Baggo Tournament Sponsored by ISU Insurance Services.
Ticket price includes: Access to this private event on Marina Green with an open bar (wine and beer), live music against the backdrop of the Bay, and lawn games that include; Baggo, Kickball, Volleyball, Horseshoes, Lawn Bowling, Croquet, & other games. We will have food trucks on site, so buy a lunch, spread a blanket, and enjoy the show.
Team registration will start at 11am and the tournament will start at 12pm. The format is double-elimination with 64 teams of two competing for valuable prizes and bragging rights. For more about Baggo (also known as Cornhole), please visit www.baggo.com. All teams will be supplied with complete rules of the game when they arrive.
