Event Details

$40 may seem a bit steep for an event on the funcheap list, but we feel this is an amazing value and worth the splurge for an event that only happens once a year – a 3 hour guided boat tour of the new bay bridge construction site, with a history talk and a free meal.

Join us for this evening cruise on labor history and a close up look at the massive construction project of the eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. The skills of the ironworkers, operators, carpenters, laborers, electricians and maritime workers who are building this monument are creating a vital link and beautiful artifact of the Bay Area.

Labor historians, photographers and building trades workers will talk about labor history and the construction of the new East Bay Span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. Gray Brechin, Mike Daly, Joseph Blum, Harvey Schwartz and others will present along with labor musicians including the Cork musician Máirtín de Cógáin and his band, and Carol Denney and friends.
