Here are some of the highlights of Labor Day weekend. Enjoy!
Lovers of art and wine will have not one, but two festivals to slake their thirst this weekend, as the Millbrae Art and Wine Festival provides “the last blast of summer” on Saturday and Sunday, while the Sausalito Art Festival takes over the waterfront there with a full three days of art, wine, and entertainment.
There are lots of sports to choose from as well. On Saturday, the Cal Bears open their season with a game against UC Davis at Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium. In San Francisco, Monday will see the annual return of the fest-pedaling bicyclists of the “Giro di San Francisco”. Some ATVs and guaranteed-very-large trucks will fill the SAP Center in the weekend’s Monster Jam Triple Threat Series.
If you're taking mass transit or driving on Highway 24, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. BART passengers contemplating a trip through the Lafayette-Orinda area will want to build in extra time for a bus bridge; and eastbound Highway 24 drivers in Lafayette will need to plan on taking some extra time there as well, due to a couple of lanes being closed all weekend. And the Valley Transportation Authority will also have a bus bridge running all weekend.
Fri, Aug 30 at 11pm thru Tue morning, Sep 3 at 7am: In Lafayette: On eastbound Highway 24 at Oak Hill Road, the two left lanes will be closed all weekend, for major BART track work until Tuesday. During peak weekend travel times, delays on EB-24 in Lafayette may reach up to 30 minutes. This is one of several weekends on which these two eastbound left lanes will need to be closed.
