Memorial Day weekend means walking around in the sunshine as works of art take shape underneath the Mission. The I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival draws hundreds of chalk-masters for a marathon display of color and creativity.
How to get to the Mission car free:
From anywhere downtown, it is a pretty walk or bike (uphill) through residential neighborhoods.
Or take the MTD route 6 or 11 and get off at State & Los Olivos. Walk northeast up Los Olivos where the street will dead end at the Mission.
