Join the throngs for a fantastic half-hour long fireworks display over the waters of the Berkeley Marina, where the bridges and skyline of San Francisco make a spectacular backdrop. In addition to the pyrotechnics in the evening, the Marina hosts a day-long gathering where you can picnic on the green, barbecue at one of the many pits, or just hang out with the crowds. Some food vendors and craftspeople peddle their goods, and the surrounding streets are closed, so walk or take public transit. Bring a sweatshirt for a possibly chilly evening, Hackysacks and Frisbees. Admission is free. Some vendors may accept credit cards. Events take place at the south end of the marina along University Avenue.
