SAN FRANCISCO—The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees the Municipal Railway (Muni), will host the 48th annual Muni Cable Car Bell Ringing Contest Tuesday, September 28, at noon in Union Square.
“The Cable Car Bell Ringing contest is a great San Francisco tradition,” said Mayor Gavin Newsom. “The cable cars are National Landmarks that allow residents and visitors alike to experience the best of our City.”
“It is no surprise that this contest has been going on for almost half a century,” added SFMTA Executive Director/CEO Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. “The participants always put on a great show in an event that allows us to celebrate our world class city and our talented gripmen and conductors.”
The contest will feature two competitions, one for local media and community representatives and another for cable car gripmen and conductors. For both portions of the contest, the first place winners will receive a trophy and a Grand Prize Bell from Trophy Masters.
The mistress of ceremony duties will once again be graciously performed by comedienne Debi Durst.
Muni's 48th annual Cable Car Bell Ringing Contest is presented by the SFMTA with the generous support of its long-time partners: the Union Square Association and Ghirardelli Chocolates.
