As a local, Autumn Glory is always a weekend I look forward to! I just love the Grand Feature Parade in Oakland on Saturday with the drums of the marching bands feeling like they beat through your chest and the creativity of the local floats and the sounds of those little plastic toy trumpets… we used to live right on Oak Street and there’s just something special different in the air around Autumn Glory.

I used to be in the parade as part of my dance classes, too…. All I remember is that it was a long way to walk!

The Thursday of Autumn Glory is a little sad this year since the Fireman’s Parade and the Oakland Fire Department’s Oktoberfest and Oompah festival are canceled. It’s just feeling a little empty this morning.

Here’s the most current version of the schedule of events for the weekend.
