Community marks Pleasanton’s 125th anniversary

Photo album highlights downtown event

Thousands flocked to downtown Pleasanton throughout the 125th Anniversary Celebration on Friday.

The afternoon-into-evening event was highlighted by an extended Concert in the Park featuring high-energy rock group Public Eye, a six-tier birthday cake with historic and modern imagery, fun and games (and informational booths) along Railroad Avenue and Neal Street, and patrons filling restaurants and shops.

The celebration, organized by the Pleasanton Downtown Association and supported by the city government and other agencies and businesses, served to honor the quasquicentennial of Pleasanton’s incorporation in 1894.

Here’s a snapshot of the photos taken by Weekly freelance contributor Mike Sedlak -- visit the Weekly’s Facebook page on Monday for the full collection.
