At one time, in the early part of the 20th Century, Alameda's Neptune Beach was a hugely popular venue for families from all over the SF Bay area.  Many would come to swim in the pools, enjoy the rides and games, or sit on the beach and watch others doing the same thing.  Located at the foot of Webster Street in Alameda, it was an exciting venue to visit.  Now gone, Alamedans still remember it's vital past, and now, for the 3rd year in a row, are celebrating it by holding the 3rd Annual Neptune Beach Community Celebration. 

Located just moments from the original site, the celebration will stay true to it's roots, and offers a ferris wheel, a fun slide,pony rides, climbing walls, and other activities to delight local families.  A stage will offer music from popular groups throughout the day.  Aspiring singers can participate in "Alameda Can Sing" which features local performers showing off their talent. 

1920's atmosphere will be around with the presence of 1920's vintage automobiles, and families are encouraged to enter their family pet in the Vintage Costume Pet Parade.  For those who want to learn more about the 1920's and Neptune Beach, there will be history tour walks available to help families learn more about the whole area. 

There will be at least 50 Arts and Crafts booths for those who want to take home a special memory of the day.  The event is being held this weekend --Saturday, September 6th, and Sunday, September 7th from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  For more information you may want to access their website:
