CANDY LAND ON LOMBARD STREET

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – To celebrate board game Candy Land’s 60th anniversary, an every day street was transformed into the magical land!
575 feet of curvy Lombard Street was taken over yesterday to stage the replication. The brick road was covered in interlocking squares of blue, yellow, orange, red, green and purple, the colors of the board game’s own path.

Children from the UC San Francisco Children’s Hospital and Friends of the Children organization competed in teams to advance down the street. Adults dressed up as game characters such as Princess Lolly, Princess Frostine and King Kandy (played by a dentist!), and spectators lined up along the sides to cheer them on the kids.
