Foster City Independence Day 2012 (Event Before The Fireworks)

Independence Day, or Fourth of July, is a federal holiday where Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in July 4th, 1776 which declared the US independence from Great Britain. Many Americans (and non-Americans) celebrate by shooting off and watching fireworks, having barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, political speeches, and many other activities. I spent the 2012 4th of July in Foster City, CA. I took photos of the fireworks, the event, and some scenery at Leo J. Ryan Park and Bay Trail. I split the photos of this event into 3 blog posts.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. View my best photos from the event here. View all of my photos from the event here.

Today's photos will be the other photos from the event. Today's photos are taken at Leo J. Ryan Park and includes photos of the people there at the event, the rides, and the live music performance. The scenery and sunset photos will be in the next post! I hope you enjoy!

I thought it would be nice to start you off with some photos from the live performance that taken place at the amphitheatre. The lake in the background is Central Lake.

Here are some closer shots of the performance at the amphitheatre.

There were also these bouncy things and slides. Don't think I got a photo of the other ride... Either way, they were over charging for the rides way too much. HAHA

I actually wanted to do this in my next post as most of it is scenery, but there are photos of people here, so I decided to post it here instead. The lake in the photo is Central Lake.

As you can see there were a lot of people. I was lucky I had a place to set down my tripod for those fireworks photos. The lake is Central Lake.

Another shot of the people at the event. In the photo is the gazebo and Central Lake.

This is all the photos for today!
