Alameda’s Busy 4th of July Weekend

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.
