Downtown Alameda Celebrates Mom at Spring Festival

Long-time residents, recent arrivals, and Island visitors alike enjoyed all that Downtown Alameda has to offer this past weekend at the 18th annual Downtown Alameda Spring Festival. The district was packed as festival attendees made their way up and down the street sipping beer, wine or mimosas. 

Children of all ages enjoyed the multitude of games, rides and activities in the Kids Zone along Alameda Avenue. Many folks were grateful to Alamedan Jim Parodi for programming the new Alameda Stage with local talent.

The Spring Festival is one of a few annual fundraising events that allow the Downtown Alameda Business Association (DABA) to introduce the district, its merchants and our events to folks living both on and off the Island. Part of the proceeds from the wine, beer and mimosa sales goes to our “Clean, Green & Safe” fund to further support our efforts to maintain our tree-lined streets.  
We are grateful for those who attended. A special thanks also goes to our dedicated board members, city officials and staffers, community volunteers, entertainers, sponsors and partners for their assistance in bringing this event to the streets of Alameda.  

Most importantly, we are ever grateful to the business association merchant members for their hospitality. It does not go unnoticed that their normal business and daily operations are changed dramatically to ensure that this event takes place. 

We hope everyone will continue to take time to discover all of what our beautiful downtown district has to offer: shop, dine and enjoy the services offered by our hometown businesses.
With gratitude,
— Janet Magleby
DABA Executive Director
