The Rose White and Blue Parade's mission is to build a historic community parade that brings together the residents, businesses and organizations who take pride in the Alameda Neighborhood Business District and in the neighborhoods that surround The Alameda.
Enjoy an old fashioned family-style parade as it winds through the Rose Garden neighborhood ending on the grand avenue of the The Alameda. This homespun parade features live bands, dance groups, home-made floats, kids on bikes, antique cars, and more. Following the parade attendees will enjoy an Arts & Music Festival with two stages of live music, carnival rides, classic car show, arts and crafts, games and multicultural food.
