First Weekends on Main
The Pleasanton Downtown Association's First Weekends on Main program begins this Friday through Sunday in downtown Pleasanton.
A revamping of the downtown street closures each summer weekend in 2021 and summer and autumn in 2020 amid the pandemic, the program for 2022 will see the affected streets closed to vehicular traffic on the first weekend of each month from May to December. The City Council approved the 2022 plan in a 4-1 vote in February.
"Every first weekend of the month, come downtown and enjoy street closures for roaming our historical downtown, events and outdoor dining," PDA officials said.
The downtown street closures will extend from the Main Street bridge to south of Bernal Avenue every first weekend of the month, starting Friday at 4 p.m. and ending Sunday at 9 p.m.
The Rotary Club of Livermore recently announced its annual Rodeo Parade will be back on June 11 at 10 a.m. in downtown.
The parade's theme each year is to honor the Livermore Valley's Western heritage, organizers said.
"If you have a classic car or truck, a horse or a wagon, wish to promote your groups or your business name then join us and be part of the parade. Walkers with a banner works too," Rotarians said. "14,000-plus people come to downtown Livermore to see the parade. The parade is an opportunity for you to advertise yourself while having some great family fun."

Sessions will be held each Monday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for eight weeks starting May 23. To register, email Olga at [email protected] or call Sharon at 925-449-5847 ext. 2607.
