Monday, July 4, will mark the 40th year that the Alameda community has celebrated the birth of the nation with a R.A.C.E. and Fourth of July parade. Television news channel KRON 4 will cover the parade for the first time this year. 

New to the celebration this year is the fact that South Shore Center and Area A at Alameda Point are sponsoring late afternoon music and entertainment. Two seperate events to enjoy following the parade will take place at the shopping center and Alameda Point at Seaplane Lagoon. 

Also new this year on July 4, at 9 p.m., the parade committee has made arrangements to have a fireworks program over the bay.
