Snapchat Geofilter Billboard
A Big Win for Fisherman's Wharf Marketing!
A Snapchat geofilter was created by the FWCBD to allow app users within the neighborhood to add a fun Fisherman's Wharf frame around their photos. In a creative new advertising campaign, Snapchat chose 50 filters from around the world to feature on billboards. The Fisherman's Wharf filter was selected and is currently on a billboard at the intersection of Van Ness and Lombard. The campaign and Fisherman's Wharf received a large amount of press for the campaign from outlets such as Business Insider and AdWeek. Make sure to use the Fisherman's Wharf filter next time you take a snap!

The Wharf By the Numbers
People Counting Devices Track Wharf Footfall
Each month we share our pedestrian counts for the previous month and previous year. March footfall shows a decrease of 10.7% over the same dates during the previous year.
Stay tuned for more annual comparisons. The FWCBD is using footfall data to help provide valuable information to the City to help advocate for more services for local property owners, merchants and visitors.
