Families will find a day full of 4th of July adventure in
Berkeley Marina. Adventure Playground,
always a favorite, is open 11am-8pm. Get your face painted, try
the giant slide, or splash in the water at the beach!
There's live entertainment from noon until 9:30 p.m. on the main stage.
Lee Waterman & Jazz Caliente
The Hipwader's Children's Music
Tin Sandwich Harmonica Trio
The Ian Franklin Band
Also appearing will be Afro Cuban Rumba Drumming, Circus Art
performers, and on The Buddy Club Stage in Shorebird Park you'll
find jugglers and magicians. In Cesar Chavez Park, there's more
food booths and a preview of the Giant Show Kites from the
Berkeley Kite Festival coming up at the end of the month.
Arts & crafts, food, massages, free dragon boat rowing
from 2-6pm, pony rides, a dunk tank, a mechanical bull, and much
more including the grand fireworks off the end of the Berkeley
Pier at 9:30pm provide an amazing day.
Ride your bike over the Berkeley Bicycle Overpass and use the free valet parking by Richmond Spokes near Adventure Playground. Or take AC Transit from the Downtown Berkeley BART station. This only runs until 6:30PM, however and doesn't come back into the marina. To leave on AC Transit, walk out over the freeway overpass after the fireworks to University and 5th St.
Free admission. Alcohol-free event. Free valet bicycle parking. No cars in or out after 7pm but lots of free parking before then. Sponsored by the City of Berkeley. AnotherBullwinkelShow.com 510.548.5335.
