WHERE TO CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY NEAR SOMA
The summer season is officially in full swing, so that means one thing and one thing only: time to start planning for the 4th of July! The celebration of Independence Day is a big one, and luckily we live in a city where there is so much to do. Whether it’s picnics, fireworks, street fairs, San Francisco has got it all! This week’s blog is all about where we will be celebrating America’s birthday around our beautiful city.
Pier 39 is the place to be for the celebration of America’s birthday- there will be live music by WJM on the Entrance Plaza Stage from 1:30-2:15pm, followed by the Bay Area’s favorite cover band Tainted Love – The Best of the 80s Live! from 5-8pm. And then at 9:30pm, the City of San Francisco will let off a stunning fireworks display to mark the occasion. The pier’s 180-degree views of the fireworks really makes the occasion worth remembering!
Fourth of July Pub Crawl & Hot Dog Eating Contest
Spend the day picnicing in a beautiful park and then in the evening make your way to SF’s Marina District to walk from bar to bar enjoying drink specials. There will also be a hotdog eating contest between the entire crawl- how many can you eat? The event is close to the waterfront, so you will have a front row spot to see the city’s famous fireworks display. The bar crawl starts at Bar None and runs from 4pm to midnight!
Speakeasy 4th of July Cruise
Spend your 4th of July on a Speakeasy 2017 cruise aboard the Fume Blanc. You will be picked up in San Francisco (Pier 40, South Beach Harbour) and go on a 4 hour tour around the city lit bay. Some of the most beautiful views will be shown such as Treasure Island, Alcatraz, The Bay Bridge, Nob Hill, the Golden Gate Bridge, the magnificent San Francisco Skyline, and an amazing view of the biggest Independence Day Firework show on the West Coast!
This 4th of July in beautiful San Francisco will be one to remember for years to come. What are your plans for the holiday?
