This year is going to be a wonderful year for Webster Street. 

On Jan. 25, the Chinese New Year was celebrated as the Year of the Rat.  Rats are clever, quick thinkers; successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life. Join the West Alameda Business Association (WABA) for our Spring Celebration — a multi-cultural family-friendly festival, Saturday, March 14, at Webster Street and Taylor Avenue, starting at 11 a.m. The event will feature music, artists, dancers, entertainers and a kids’ crafts zone where they can even make their own paper rats!
