This event was started 25 years ago by the Buchanan family as a celebration of Memorial Day weekend at the Alameda beach. Several fun filled years later,it was moved to the second Saturday in June and to Washington Park, where it has grown into an Alamedan Family Affair with over 200 in attendance every year. Hosted by Ms Debbie Buchanan and a few community sponsors
Every year Alameda Alums and their families from Encinal, Island and Alameda High travel from throughout the Bay Area and across the country to attend.
