Berkeley Kite Festival

ANNUAL BERKELEY KITE FESTIVAL

Date:  Sunday, July 28, 2013

Time:  9:30 am - since the festival will be crowded, I think that it is important to arrive early so I have changed the time to 9:30 am.

Location:  Cesar Chavez Park at the Berkeley Marina

Here is a link to the website with more information.

Cost:  This is a Free event except for the $15.00 parking fee. There is a free shuttle from Golden Gate Fields but there is still a $15.00 fee per car at Golden Gate fields so we need to find a location in the area near Berkeley to set up a car pool.  If you know the area, please recommend a meeting location. Thanks.

    Although the weather could have been better, there were still a lot of kites to shoot as well as the people shots like the kids petting zoo.

    I had a good time with Ed and we met Lily there. The fog made photos of the large groups of kites less than spectacular and it was a bit cold.

    I'll know by tonight whether or not I can make it. There is free parking at the Emeryville Public Market right off of 580 and Powell St (actually on 5959 Shellmound St). I haven't been there in over a year, so I'm assuming they still have free parking. There seems to be more spaces in the back of the buildings. To get to the Berkeley Marina is just an easy ride up the frontage road. The Public Market has a nice eatery inside for anyone who wants to grab lunch afterwards.

      Yes I have been to the Emeryville market many times and that is why I picked it for the meeting point. Thanks for the reply.

    This is a colorful, fun family event, lots to photograph. I was there last year with my then 7yr old granddaughter who brought her own kite to fly; and her dad. I made a photo book for her. It was also overcast and cool in the AM and sunny by mid-afternoon, but not bad at all. Lots of vendors, activities too.

    If the weather cooperates, I plan on attending. Right now, they are calling for AM clouds/PM sun.

    I'm planning to park in the Marina, in the handicap parking. I'd be happy to drive someone in, if you find a good meeting place. I'm planning to leave right after the kite battle (about 1:45) I have to be home by 3:00.

    This is a call for any suggestions for a meeting spot where we can combine into fewer cars to save some money on the parking. Thanks.

    I and my wife will be there!
