The brand Lecheros, owned by Alfredo Uribe, hosted an event called “Lovers Lane” on Saturday.

 The local event in the Mission District took place on Balmy Alley as an event to enjoy before Valentine’s Day. Many local vendors including clothing shops and food shops came out to support the local event. 

A group of people who own lowriders came out to show support for this event as well with some of their classic cars. The purpose of this event was to bring the Latino community together and help bring revenue to small mom and pop shops in the Mission District.
