The place for Oaklanders on July Fourth? Jack London Square, which has free activities starting at 4pm today. If you haven’t made plans, this line-up should make you feel appropriately patriotic.
You can hang out and listen to these groups: Basic Black Soul and RB; Amigos Latin Pop; House of David Pop/Rock/Cover; and The Ben Oni Orchestra Big Band.
Your kids can be entertained for hours, too. There’s the requisite magician, a jump house, carnival games, animal balloons, face-painting, and arts & crafts.
Fireworks return this year, after last year’s hiatus. The display runs from 9:15 – 9:35 pm, accompanied by the Ben Oni Band playing our anthems.
