An estimated 3,000 people attended the Berkeley High School All-Class Reunion on Saturday Aug. 22 at San Pablo Park in Berkeley. They gathered under blue skies to greet old friends, reminisce, buy commemorative T-shirts, and have a good time.

This is the third all-school picnic since 2011. The picnic is held every other year and the number of attendees keeps growing.

“I just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had at the BHS all-class reunion today,” one attendee said on the reunion’s Facebook page. “Seeing everyone enjoying themselves with family and friends brought tears to my eyes. Being from Berkeley, a resident of Berkeley, and graduating from Berkeley High (No matter the Year) is truly a unique experience.”

Mark Coplan, the public information officer for the Berkeley Unified School District, took these photos. More photos can be found here.
