4th of July BBQ and Pool Party


Come join our perennial Mostly Marin July 4th celebration. Lounge by the pool, play bocce ball, eat and drink.

Bring food to share (the BBQ will be on) your preferred beverage, bathing suit and be ready to party. Also - bring a lounge chair if you have one!

When the sun starts to set, those who are interested can join us around as we head off to the County fairgrounds to watch the July 4th fireworks.

Come join us. We've had a great time every year.

Note: space is limited, so please do not RSVP unless you do plan to join us. Prior 'no shows' and prior 'last minute cancellations' will be moved to the waitlist.

Address and more details to be sent on prior to the 4th.

    How do I get my photo, (on right side of this page, 2nd down) I'm in blue shirt, into this frame on left. HELP!

      Hi Alan! You already have a profile on Mostly Marin under the name, "Alan," and your photo is there (right there on the right side of this page!!). You don't need to (nor should you) RSVP with "Alan Rossi." You're set. In fact, through your profile you can remove Alan Rossi as a member...but "Alan" will still be in the group. Keep coming to our events!

    Thank you so much, Alan and Lyn, for organizing this party. I'm very sorry I had to leave before meeting everyone. Well, if there's a next year........!
    Please, let me know when I can pick up my salad bowl. No hurry, though!

    I would really love to attend -- I guess I'm wait listed right now. I'm new to Marin I'd love to be instrumental in creating a 2nd or bigger event ! Keep me I the loop!

    June 8, 2013

    • Linda B

      Have you seen that a second event has been posted?

      July 2, 2013

  • elizabeth r.

    WOW!
    anyone else have a great spot the rest of us on the waitlist could party at??? i have a great spot to watch fireworks in sausalito but it's too small to handle 43!

    • Linda B

      Member Jessica has posted a second event...there's room for everyone!

      July 2, 2013

  • Daphne

    Wow 53 people on the waiting list. That's enough for a whole new party. Are there any of the 53 members or their friends, who might have a big enough back yard to have another Thurs July 4th or even Fri July 5th or Sat July 6th BBQ party ???? Just wonderin' since this happens every year.

    June 19, 2013

    • Linda B

      A second event has been posted. There's still time to sign up.

      July 2, 2013

  • James

    With so many on the waitlist that likely won't get to go. How about an alternate 2nd location for those on waitlist. I have friend at winery that owns a winery that could accommodate a large group (but it is near Petaluma)

    1 · June 30, 2013

    • Linda B

      A second event has been posted. Will you be going?

      Great to hear you're bringing something health oriented.. Us vegie people must stick together. Personally I'm bringing an Asian influenced slaw with fresh cut corn, cilantro and slivered raw almonds :)

      July 2, 2013

  • Janet

    I am offering a carpool from the city - we'd meet in the Marina/Pac Hts area. I would leave SF about 12:30 and plan to stay at the party until appx 6 or 7pm (not staying for fireworks). So if that timing works for you, pls respond with email address if you are interested.

    June 30, 2013

    • Janet

      wont be the fancy sports car - you okay with that ;)

      July 1, 2013

    • Susanna

      fancy sports cars get boring after awhile...appreciate the ride!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
