Kick off the summer with the City of Berkeley’s annual carnival and community picnic, where families, friends and neighbors will be able to enjoy a day of games, food, and fun.
Youth are invited to slide down water slides, jump on giant inflatables, scale a climbing wall, scramble through an obstacle course, or play a variety of sports. There’ll be carnival games, a petting zoo with bunnies and goats, and chances for little ones to play in the tot zone
Your kids would join others coming from most of the 16 city-run summer camps, and kids from other camps in Berkeley are also welcome.
They’ll get fed, too. Burgers will be served by Fuddruckers. And we’re already anticipating the lines for ice cream, popcorn, shaved ice, and cotton candy. Those age 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
