Golden Gate's 75th Has a Party Planner

Jason Montiel

The Golden Gate Bridge has been repping the San Francisco Bay Area on postcards, t-shirts and corporate logos for nigh-on 74 years -- and 2012's 75th anniversary is going to mean even more.

The G.G. bridge district supervisors have partnered with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service to plan a soiree fitting of the iconic engineering marvel -- replete with a new pavilion and visitor experience.

A linchpin of the celebration is an entirely updated area surrounding the existing toll plaza, according to SFGate.com. In early 2012, the roundhouse will be transformed into "a forum for public events, possibly including educational tours, a 75th-anniversary pavilion..."

The year-long celebration gets underway during the Marin County Fair, June 30-July 4 of this year, according to MercuryNews.com.

All programs must be self-funded, officials agreed.
