Giant Candyland on Lombard Street in San Francisco

The world’s most crooked street got a makeover to honor the 60th anniversary of a classic board game Candyland for one day only. About 20 workers started at 4am “sugarcoating” Lombard Street setting up purple, yellow, blue, orange, green and red blocks along the 1/4 mile path creating a larger-than-life version of the game including recreations of “Candy Cane Forest” and “Gum Drop Mountain.”

The street will be closed to traffic as children from the University of California, San Francisco Children's Hospital participate in the game as colored game pieces and interact with life-sized game characters, according to organizers.

The event will end with a 60th birthday celebration and cake.

Pin It now!
