It’s been a high-profile day for Alamedans.
At 6:30 a.m., Channel 5, the Bay Area’s CBS affiliate, filmed part of its Early Edition by helicopter over Alameda Avenue.
Supporters of tomorrow’s breast cancer fundraiser, Dance for a Cure, formed a pink ribbon and gave the Bay Area a “hi five,” waving pink ballons and reminding the community to come out tomorrow from 5 p.m. to midnight at Eagles Hall.
“They’re going nuts waving!” said one of the broadcasters. “See how creative our Hi Fives are — they are jumping up and down!”
“The tickets are really selling out,” said DJ Alex Mejia, an Alameda native. “We should have at least 400 people.”
Around the corner on Central Avenue, the area around the Alameda Theatre was closed off by police so that GMC could film a commercial for one of its new SUVs.
Watch out for those cameras and film crews as you move around town!
