California Parks Company Announces 2nd Annual Angel Island Spring Festival
Enjoy Easter Egg Hunting, Brunch, Live Music, Free Wine Tastings and More
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 13, 2018) – Looking for free family fun Easter weekend in one of the most beautiful places in the San Francisco Bay Area? The California Parks Company will hosts its 2nd Annual Angel Island Spring Festival on March 31, kid-friendly activities and a little “gift” for the parents.
Taking place March 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., the festival kicks off with an egg hunt, where children in various age groups can win prizes if they find a golden egg. From noon to 2 p.m., adults will get their own prize in the form of complimentary wine and beer tastings—courtesy of McGrail Vineyards and Gordon Biersch—in the café, which will host a special Spring Fling menu for purchase all weekend. Innovative string band Rusty String Express band will accompany the festivities on the café deck throughout the afternoon, which will include Segway tours (buy tickets in advance or in the café) and bike rentals (first-come, first-served). For those who prefer to take in the views on foot, several hiking trails await exploration.
Guests can also be the first to experience the new, more modern tram and new audio headsets at 11:45 a.m. and 2 p.m. The narrated historic tour takes an hour, traversing the paved perimeter road of Angel Island in a new tram that seats 50. While the speakers play in English, international guests can now take advantage of new interpretive language headphones in Spanish, French, Italian and Mandarin. The tour offers spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco and Alcatraz, stopping at Battery Ledyard to take selfies with one of the most coveted vantage points. The narrator points out the fascinating stories behind historic buildings on the island, including Immigration Station, which once served as the “Ellis Island” of the San Francisco Bay area. While the festival is free, the tour costs $16.50 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10.50 for children ages 6-12. Advance tickets are recommended here, but can also be purchased at the café if spaces are available.
