Longtime Fourth of July Parade Committee members left to right: Kendra Williams, Mark Sorenson and Barbara Price kick off the 2018 Fourth of July Parade (above). The trio will be out there again today, leading the community in what has long been rumored the longest Fourth of July Parade in the nation, and therefore, the world. Word from Price is that in 2020 the City of Alameda may be taking over production of the parade from the volunteer, nonprofit committee. The new arrangement has Sorenson and Price stepping down after more than a decade of service.
