Labor Day Weekend Events

So, what are you going to do this weekend? Remember, the Bay Bridge will be closed, so keep alternate transportation in mind. As I wrote yesterday, you can get all the 411 right here. Here are some ways to have fun and avoid the freeways.

If you are in the East Bay, I highly recommend the annual Art & Soul Festival in Downtown Oakland. Six stages of music (including Lucinda Williams and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy), rides and activities for kids, an artisan marketplace, food and wine tasting, and more. This is a great event each year!

Or take the Ferry to the Sausalito Art Ferry. Now in its 55th year (!!!), the best artists and artisans from the west coast show of their latest work in one very beautiful location. If you've never been, you must check it out!

Or take BART to the Big City for two very different events. Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love with a reunion concert in Golden Gate Park. And, the gay community celebrates bear culture at the huge new event--the 4th Annual Hairrison Street Fair. (Woof!).

No matter what you choose to do...have a great time with your friends and family. Have a great weekend!
