Independence Day in Alameda!

Elvis was in the parade, along w/ Charlie Chan!

Alameda’s Independence Day Parade check this link for the City’s  Annual parade route.  Bring a chair, and something to drink, and watch the parade go by! The Island has the longest parade in the nation. Having been in it for several years, on and off, I can attest to its length! Especially the year a group of us agents walked the route tossing our open house signs to music! But we got lots of cheers!

Then if you don’t have anything better to do at 3pm, head over to South Shore Center, to the Center Court, bring a chair, and listen to the Beatles come alive with the cover band The Sun Kings. They are truly amazing! You will want to sing to every song, and probably end up dancing, too!

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
