First ever Bay Day celebrates the wonders of the Bay Area

Bay Day, which will be held annually throughout the Bay Area on the first Saturday of October, is a day for Bay Area residents to share their pride in San Francisco Bay. Kinda like Earth Day but thinking locally rather than globally. Celebrate the natural beauty, open spaces, special museums, and even our awesome food.
