Officials say tens of thousands of people flocked to the area Sunday to enjoy a number of events taking place along a section of waterfront stretching from Fort Point south of the bridge to Pier 39 along The Embarcadero.

The festivities was capped off with a fireworks display Sunday night.

The California Highway Patrol shut down traffic across the bridge from 9 p.m. through 10 p.m.
