The King of the Streets car show in San Francisco has become one of the most popular and well known lowrider events in the Bay Area. The coolest part of the event happens after the car show when everyone goes out to Mission street to hang out and cruise. If you ever want to experience a true “lowrider” happening we recommend you make it out to San Francisco for the King of the Streets and go to Mission Street after the show. Mission is full of lowriders and people for at least five blocks, every corner has a DJ or someone playing cool music and the cars cruise all evening well into the night. There is so much action that we have a hard time capturing it all even with three of us shooting photos. The atmosphere and vibe is like no other and will turn anyone into a fan of lowriding. The San Francisco Lowrider Council does a great job of working with the City to reserve all the parking spots on Mission for lowriders only, and even though the police is present they seem to focus mainly on keeping the peace during the event.

Here's our coverage from 'Cinco de Mayo' weekend. We covered both Northern California & Southern California.
Our first stop was Hillview Park in San Jose, CA. We have been going to San Jose for Cinco de Mayo cruising for many years. It's good to see the car community still goes out to cruise.
After San Jose we headed a bit North to San Francisco to cruise the Mission. The cruising in the Mission is always a blast. The Low Riders come together every time and keep the cruising fun & safe.
Same night we also hit Hollywood Blvd. to check out the cruising. The turn out was a little overwhelming and the cops shut it down early. Too many people out blocking the streets, but we still had a great time.
Sunday we headed to Whittier Narrows to the LA Times Car Club & Elegants Car Cub Cinco de Mayo picnic. The park looked good filled with some of Southern California's best low riders. Thanks to Amigos Car Club for feeding us tacos.
Thanks for looking!
We postponed the official Deadend Cruise Night in San Jose, CA to a later date so we decided to text, message, call, etc.. some of our friends to get together anyway and cruise our cars to San Jose, CA. A somewhat unofficial cruise night. We had a great time. Thanks to all who came out.
Saturday we headed to San Francisco, CA for the annual King of the Streets event. We can't really call it a car show cause it's much more. The event starts with a cruise from the San Francisco Mission to Fort Mason (this year's venue) once there, there is also a car show and hop. After most cruise over back to Mission Street for what seems like a low rider takeover. We had a great time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.
