West County is always brimming with wonderful events celebrating the nation's birthday!
Celebrating the 4th of July is a way to honor our nation's founding as an independent, democratic republic.
It's also a nice segue to Point Richmond's acclaimed summer concert series, the East Richmond Heights Art & Music Festival, the downtown Healthy Village Festival, and the El Cerrito WorldOne Festival.
Hope to see you at one of these events!
