Waking up on Parade Day

I decided to go for a quick walk around Oakland this morning and watch the finishing touches being done in preparation for today’s Grand Feature Parade.  The streets were already  lined with chairs as a few stragglers were claiming their favorite spots to watch the parade.2nd St Before

The food vendors were just starting to open up and readying for the festive day ahead.

With partly cloudy skies and just a slight chance of precipitation in the air, it  should be a  joyous event.  So, come join us.

Dressing up for company

With the Autumn Glory festivities starting tomorrow evening the town of Oakland is getting all cleaned up.  From checking on the autumn displays to trimming the grass the businesses and residents are putting on their Sundays best to look good for the activities.

Meter Decorating Contest

This afternoon was a beautiful day to go check out the Parking Meter decorating contest. So far there are 16 meters all decked out and looking great. Make sure you take the time and check them out.  To vote for your favorite meter, just drop a quarter in the slot.

We also created a new album with all of contestants so far.  We will be adding to the album as more of the meters get all dressed up.

All of the proceeds from the meters will be used for new Christmas decorations for the town.
