The 4th of July Celebrations – in Berkeley and around the bay

by Ira Serkes on July 3, 2012

 

Sedge Thomson always has a reading of the Declaration of Independence on West Coast Live around the 4th of July

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Wow – what it must have felt to have signed this document.

My favorite places to celebrate the 4th are at the Berkeley Marina, the Marin County Fair, and the wonderful parades in Alameda and Piedmont.

Fireworks?  The best are also the Marin County Fair and the Berkeley Marina
