Thanks for your kind coverage of the 100th Alameda County Fair's Main St Parade.
The TV30 Foundation was pleased to underwrite the two week broadcast in partnership with the Acapulco Restaurant in Alameda and its proprietor, Gordon Galvan, a Director of the County Fair Board.
This was he first parade for a few years, and we had a great turnout. If you have Comcast the Parade may be recorded on one's DVR or TiVo just like any other program.
The schedule is: Today, Monday, at 9 p.m., Tuesday, 2 p.m.; Wednesday, 11 p.m.; Thursday at noon and 11 p.m., and Friday at 7 p.m. for the next two weeks.

Christine - The current restrictions to parking around the Fair does not take into account the Fair being closed on Monday. The signs are posted prohibiting parking from June 20th to July 8th (some areas are No Parking, others are 9AM - 8PM).
I will bring up the Monday closure with the Police, Fire and Streets crews at our monthly meeting. I am not sure what type of activity, if any, takes place on Monday's that would impact the neighborhood. My guess is that there would not be a parking impact. The signage, however, would have another layer of confusion as the restrictions would be June xx to July xx, 9AM to 8PM and Tue-Sun. I believe with just the 2 monday's each year it was decided to make the restriction more easily understood by blanketing the entire 2 week period.
