The annual Independence Day Eve fireworks show over the Bay is set to begin at 9:15 p.m. this Wednesday.

And like every year, Marina Bay Park and Craneway Pavilion will become great places to watch the show while enjoying free live music and fun family-friendly activities.

The community is expected to come out in full force to watch the Oakland Symphony perform in the 11th Annual Independence Eve Celebration Concert at the Craneway Pavilion at 1414 Harbour Way South.  The event begins with pre-concert festivities at 6:30 p.m., followed by the Oakland Symphony concert at 8 p.m. Along with the concert, there will be a performance by the Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, wine, food, family-friendly activities, an instrument petting zoo, and post-concert fireworks over San Francisco Bay accompanied by the Oakland Symphony. 

Marina Bay Park

Another great spot to watch the fireworks will be Marina Bay Park. From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the park will have a Kids Zone with bounce houses and giant inflatable slides, arts and crafts, food and information vendors, a local DJ, and more. The event is sponsored by the City of Richmond Community Services Department.

Riggers’ Loft Wine Company

Interested in a wine with your fireworks? From 6-10 p.m., Riggers Loft Wine Company at 1325 Canal Blvd. will hold a party before and during the fireworks show. Live music by Andre Thierry, food trucks and a video game truck for kids. Tickets are $15 to $25 and kids under 6 are free.


  1. You can use trivia questions if you want. You can market
    a blog with something that is copied so you do not own the rights.
    People, by nature, hate being bombarded by commercials and ads.

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  3. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the long run and it’s time to
    be happy. I’ve read this submit and if I could I want
    to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you could write subsequent
    articles regarding this article. I desire to read more issues about it!

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
    website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or
    if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Found your site within the yahoo bulk shirts warehouse directory, very nice job, thanks. Screen printing could further be used for those types of other substrates from plastic to metal. Despite the fact that tiny and complex details can be gathered, screen printing is preferably suitable for bold and graphic designs.
