Live music, fishing, bird-watching, choo-choo train rides, free books and a whole lot more family fun are expected at the 12th Annual North Richmond Shoreline Festival, which takes place Saturday at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline Park, 5551 Giant Highway.
The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“For those who haven’t visited Point Pinole, the festival provides a great reason to explore it,” For Richmond Executive Director Kyra Worthy said in a post on the nonprofit’s website last month. “It’s easily one of the Richmond shoreline’s most breathtaking spots.”
The great video below was produced by Lana Husser from last year’s festival.
The festival will also feature pony rides, natures walks, Zumba! and more. Performers include blues musician Clarence Van Hook, Consonance (gospel/jazz), Duamuxa (Latin) and dancer Patricia Bullitt, who will perform Egretfully. Eleven, a solo dance performance to the music of composer/musician Gretchen Yanover that’s inspired by nesting and courtship movements, according to For Richmond.
The Audubon Society will lead bird watching sessions, and those wanting to fish are asked to bring their own equipment, the nonprofit reported.
Whitney Dotson of East Bay Regional Parks, Richmond Mayor Tom Butt, San Pablo Vice Mayor Rich Kinney and Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia will speak at the festival.
