The Berkeley-Albany YMCA will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a YMCA Day in the Park Saturday. 

The free event, which will take place at Martin Luther King Jr. Park on Martin Luther King Jr. Way, includes music, food, a magic show and a blood drive by the American Red Cross. 

“The best way to recognize 100 years of programs, services and activities is with the community itself,” said Larry Bush, president and CEO for the Berkeley-Albany YMCA. 

The event will begin with a 7:30 a.m. yoga class, followed by an 8:45 a.m. Tai Chi course. The main festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Sponsors include KTVU, Channel 2, Wells Fargo Bank, Berkeley developer Panoramic Interests and Concord-based janitorial services company ConCar Industries.
