The free festival is organized by the City of Berkeley and the Marina Experience Program, and was inaugurated 76 years ago in 1937 when the Marina first opened. Its purpose is to showcase the activities and environmental education that are available at the Marina and locally.
Activities on Saturday included music, free sailboat and Dragon boat rides, a variety of food, street theater, building and climbing at the Adventure Playground, and visits to a straw bale building and with Berkeley firefighters.
Remember to check Berkeleyside’s Events Calendar which is chock full of local music, theater, dance, talks and community happenings. And submit your own events — it’s free and self-serve.
