Model Yacht Club celebrates 120th birthday

The public is invited to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the San Francisco Model Yacht Club at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park on Sunday, Sept. 16, starting at 9:30 a.m.

The anniversary celebration is part of the club’s biennial Model Boats on Parade festival, which features model boats of all kinds, including static boat displays, a boat parade and demonstrations on the lake. The family-friendly event is free to the public and features activities for adults and children; historic boat displays and posters explaining the history of various boats, the lake and the 1930s-era clubhouse. Several club members will don turn-of-the-century costumes and appear with period props for the public to take photos.
