The Alameda Fourth of July Parade will be the highlight of the holiday weekend. It starts at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
Some 170 floats with 2,500 participants will travel the 3-mile route from Park Street and Lincoln Avenue, down Park to Otis Drive, over to Central Avenue and then down Webster, where the Jumpin’ & Jivin’ Jubilee will be held from noon until 4 p.m.
It’s recently been decided by the city that politicians can participate in the events, but they can’t tell parade watchers what race they are poised to run for: No campaigning materials or election posters are allowed.
Later in the day, High Street Station coffee house will have another Saturday night barbeque from 5:30 to 8 p.m., with ribs, hot dogs, potato salad, garlic bread and more for $9.95.
The Placebos band will be playing from 7 to 9 p.m. at the cafe, 1303 High Street.
Encinal Yacht Club is hosting lots of activities on the 4th as well.
