TV painter Ross’ hairdresser amid floats in July 4 Parade

Alameda’s Fourth of July Parade represents life in the Island City through its series of entrants from every corner of the community. From public officials, to sponsors, to herds of horses and the people shoveling up after them, and entries presenting everything from political statements to blatant advertising, everyone receives a cheer. Each year judges choose the best entries to the parade who receive trophies or medals. 

The real estate firm that manages South Shore Center will hold two days of community open houses for Alameda residents to discuss the new development plan for the property on Tuesday, July 9, and Wednesday, July 10.

Jamestown Properties, an Atlanta-based real estate investment and management firm with offices throughout the United States including San Francisco, is holding the open houses to inform and solicit input from residents on its future plans for South Shore Center. The real estate firm is calling the new development project the “South Shore Center Neighborhood Plan.”

At 5 p.m. Thursday, June 20, the Planning Board will take its meeting on the road. The public is welcome to come along. The board will first host an open forum in the parking lot on Oak Street behind City Hall. Board members and the public will then visit four developments: Everett Commons at 2437 Everett St.; Mulberry at 2100 Clement Avenue; Littlejohn Commons at 1401 Buena Vista Ave. and Alameda Landing.

The 53rd annual Sand Castle and Sand Sculpture Contest held June 8 on Crown Memorial Beach featured a vast array of original works in both the architectural and creative divisions. The Alameda Recreation and Parks Department, which hosts the event, reported 475 people participated with 50 sand castle entries and 64 sand sculpture entries. 

Winners were divided into age categories with the judges’ favorites being named “Best in Show” for each division. The top three entries from each category — which include the best in show entries — received ribbons for their efforts.
