Dance in the Alameda 4th of July Parade!

Every year, Alameda has a 4th of July parade. This year I will have a float in the parade called Alameda Dance Party. If you want to be in a parade, join our non-stop dance party! Shaking your booty IS required!

You know you've always wanted to be in a parade. Well, now is your chance to do it! We'll be playing family-friendly music to get the crowd moving (funk classics, disco, latin beats, eletronica, pop, world, and more), Our intent is to play high-energy dance-friendly jams to move the party people!

Line-up will take place on Lincoln Ave between Lea Court & Walnut St (we are float #78). Arrive by 9am at the latest to join in. Being on the float is first-come, first-served. If there are a large number of attendees, then some people may dance behind/around the truck. We will try to trade off as we are able to during the parade.

The route is 3.2 miles across town, ending at Webster St. and Lincoln Ave. We will take you back to the beginning of the route we we started from.

We will continue the party after the parade by heading to Lincoln Park on High St (between Central & Santa Clara) and have a BBQ (and maybe even play bocce ball).

- something for the BBQ if you want to post-party with us
- water for the ~3hr parade
- a hat / sunscreen b/c it may be HOT!
- your dancing shoes
- a dance-like-nobody's-watching attitude

- a ride on a parade float 
- a DJ to get your body moving
- Sangria for the BBQ
- non-stop dance jams

We hope to see you there! This is an event not to be missed!

    Just a note, everyone: My RSVP list is much bigger than a few weeks ago all of a sudden! As a result, not all of us may fit on the truck. Some of us may trade off dancing on the back of the float, and dancing behind the truck to make room for everyone. I just want you to be aware ahead of time! It's going to be blast no matter what, though! I can feel it!
