Alameda 4th of July Parade

One of the longest Independence Day parades in the nation — clocking in at just over three hours — this civic event attracts 60,000 spectators to this little island just to the left of Oakland. You’ll see high school marching bands, civic leaders, police and firemen —  all the classics — in addition to dancing horses and quirky floats dreamed up by local businesses. When we say get there early, we mean it: neighbors in this Leave It to Beaver-esque community start staking out primo viewing spots before dawn.
