New Years

January 1

San Francisco’s New Years celebrations take over the bay thanks to its spectacular fireworks show. The fireworks show usually lasts about 15 minutes and is synced to music with speakers along the promenade. Watch them from the water on a cruise, or from the Oakland/Berkeley hills for a view from above.
