  3. Berkeley Kite Festival



Since 1985, the Berkeley Kite Festival has entertained kite enthusiasts from all parts of the Bay Area eager to take place in this two-day event. The Marina's grassy Caesar Chavez Park is the perfect waterfront location with its views of the Bay and San Francisco, and its high-powered winds. Home of the West Coast Kite Championships, the festival is a perfect outing for families, offering children's kite-making classes, as well as the popular Candy Drop. Pack a picnic lunch (or try the eats at the food booths), a blanket, a windbreaker, and a healthy sense of wonder. Admission is free.
