City of Alameda Presents “Winter Island” Holiday Celebration

The City of Alameda has announced the first Winter Island – A Holiday Celebration event, running Thursday, December 16th through Thursday December 30th along Webster Street. Organized by the Economic Development Department, the event is apparently designed to boost the flagging fortunes of the city’s Webster Street business district.

According to a statement released by the City of Alameda, “Winter Island will showcase a special activity each day to encourage holiday spirit, dining, and shopping in Alameda.” The City will erect a holiday tent at the corner of Webster Street and Pacific Avenue to host a variety of activities, most of which will be free to the public. The events and activities announced by the City are as follows:

Dinner & a Movie ~ Thursday, December 16, 23, and 30
(Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and movie will begin at 7:00 p.m.)
Winter Island will feature a series of classic holiday films presented in the tent, including Miracle on 34th Street on Thursday, December 16; A Christmas Story on Tuesday, December 23; and It’s a Wonderful Life on Tuesday, December 30. Free small popcorn and soda will be offered to visitors who bring a receipt from any Alameda restaurant (receipt must be dated the same day as the film and offer is valid while supplies last).
Cost: Free – Space is limited and is first-come, first-served.

Pet Parade & Market ~ Saturday, December 18
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.: Pet Market and Santa Paws
10:30 a.m. – Noon: Pet Parade and Contest
Pet owners are invited to bring their pet, dressed in their holiday best, to walk in the Winter Island Pet Parade. As each pet (and their owner) strut their stuff, judges will be on hand to find the most festive pet in the crowd. Awards will be given to the best pet in each of the following categories: Best Pet Costume; Pet & Owner Look-a-Like; Silly Dog Trick; and Best Tail Wagging. A pet market will also be open at Winter Island where patrons will find unique and playful gifts. Participants who bring a receipt from any retail store or restaurant in Alameda will receive a special doggy bag with gifts and coupons (receipt must be dated the same day as the event and offer is valid while supplies last).

The Winter Island tent welcomes Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys for a night of swingin’ and dancin’. Since forming in 1988, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have emerged as one of the world’s most respected practitioners of American roots music, western swing, rockabilly, and traditional country – playing it like they invented it. Participants who bring a receipt from any retail store or restaurant in Alameda will receive VIP seating (receipt must be dated the same day as the event.
