The Berkeley Marina hosts one of the best 4th of July parties from noon until 10PM. There are all kinds of free family fun in an alcohol-free environment, with lots of tasty food stalls and gourmet food trucks. Wear your dancing shoes as there is live entertainment. The event will culminate with fantastic fireworks at Berkeley Pier at 9:30PM!
Adventure Playground, where kids ride a zipline or use hammers, nails, saws, and paint with parental supervision is free and open until 8PM. Located right near a protected beach, it is great for a splash in the sun or building sand castles.
Looking Glass Photo sponsors the free photo booth where red, white and blue hats and boas are waiting for you to adorn yourself. They will also teach you how to take the very best photos of the fireworks that evening.
Berkeley Canoe Racing Club gives free Dragon Boat rides 12-5PM, although you might just find that you have to do a bit of the rowing. Or bring a kite and let it fly over the northern area of the marina in Cesar Chavez Kite Park.
