Bridge Day

The Golden Gate Bridge was completed May 27, 1937, and the city of San Francisco celebrated by walking across it. People continue to cross in a unique manner -- stilts, sprinting, roller skates, tap dancing -- on Pedestrian Day. Look at Wikimedia's picture gallery of the bridge.

Although Bridge Day was originally created for the Golden Gate's opening, there are other activities to celebrate. Fayetteville, West Virginia, has its own Bridge Day in October, with base jumping, rapelling, and a complete festival.

And then there's the other kind of bridge.
