Hot dogs, soda and chips for a dollar, good music, good friends, celebrating the Independence of our great nation. What better way to spend the afternoon in Pleasanton!!

I went down with my kids and thought the atmosphere and the music were great. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more music and less talking. At points I felt like I was at a political rally and not a 4th celebration. I wish Pleasanton did more for the 4th, like a parade. We have a parade for every other holiday!
