One of the more significant events to take place here in the Island City each year has suddenly hit a snag in its more than 40-year history. Since its inception under the leadership of Mayor Chuck Corica to celebrate the nation’s bicentennial in 1976, the Alameda Fourth of July Parade has long held a significant place in this city’s culture.
