Fourth of July Waterfront Festival
The Fourth of July holds a place of honor in our vast country, and every year we find ourselves outdoing previous years in our vivacity and spirit when it comes to celebrating our independence from Britain. Of course we all celebrate in our own fashion, but in larger cities, the bang is the biggest and the events are memorable in ways that a quiet night at home toasting ourselves simply cannot match. In San Francisco, the same rules apply.
This year, the festivities along the waterfront are numerous, from music by cover band Tainted Love – The Best of the 80’s Live, and special exhibits near Pier 39 up until the 9:30 firework extravaganza. If you happen to be in the Bay Area, regardless of whether it is for work or pleasure, come down to the waterfront and swing by Pier 39 for the best 4th party you will ever experience.
What makes Pier 39’s 4th of July celebration so great? To start with, the location. Giving visitors a 180-degree view of the Bay, the pier remains unmatched when it comes to firework appreciation. The view isn’t the only reason to make your way to Pier 39 though. Right now, tickets are available for the America’s Cup yacht charter, which will depart at sunset from the pier and allow guests a chance to experience life aboard a luxury ocean vessel with an unforgettable view of the firework display. Slightly less pricey is the Blue & Gold Fleet, which offers an alcohol-free 4th experience that makes the evening safe and fun for the entire family.
All along the pier are restaurants that can satisfy the pangs of hunger felt in your patriotic belly. From classics like Nathan’s Hot Dog Cart to new favorites like Mango’s Taqueria & Cantina, the dining options make it so you can spend the entire evening along the pier without needing to worry about anything except the volume of your voice as you cheer loudly for the sprawling landmass we call home.
Other attractions along Pier 39 include:
- The San Francisco Carousel
- Street Performers
- Magowan’s Infinite Mirror
- SOLVE IT! Think out of the Box Play Area
- The landmark “Musical Stairs”
