The 34th America’s Cup officially opened on the 4th of July – Independence Day. An afternoon Opening Ceremony at America’s Cup Park kicked off the celebration, and the day concluded with a city-wide fireworks display on the San Francisco Bay.
During the Opening Ceremony, all four teams were introduced to the audience at AC Pavilion. The ceremony also featured cultural performances from the four competing nations. Recycled Percussion, the ‘America’s Got Talent’ finalists, performed a high-energy, all-American salute for the crowd.
