Alpine’s 4th of July hometown parade & festival will be BIGGER & Better than EVER!

  This year’s Alpine 4th of July Parade & Festival is expected to be bigger and better than last year’s, according to coordinator Pene Manale of the Kiwanis Club of Alpine. Presented by the Kiwanis Club, the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce and the Alpine Community Center, the celebration will start with a bi-plane flyover, a wolf on a motorcycle, donkeys and more in the 10 a.m. parade down Alpine Boulevard to Tavern Road. The march ends near the festival at the Alpine Community Center Park, 1830 Alpine Blvd. Two bands, children’s activities, food, vendors and more will keep the fun going until 2 p.m.

“We’ve got a lot of community involved in this, and that’s what we’re trying to do,” Manale said. “Uncle Sam and his assistants will pass out small flags along the parade route. It’s going to be bigger than last year —- bigger, better, definitely family friendly.” She said volunteers are still needed to carry parade sponsor banners. “If it weren’t for the sponsors, we couldn’t have the parade,” said Manale. The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians is this year’s major event sponsor.  Children’s Nature Retreat; Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc.; Baron’s Market and Alpine Landscape Materials are also sponsors, in addition to many local businesses and organizations.

Manale said this year’s parade has about 50 entries so far, including Grand Marshal Roy Athey, former owner/operator of the small Descanso, Alpine & Pacific Railway.  “We’re going to have Rollo the clown, who will be on stilts,” said Hilde Hinchcliff, parade coordinator. “That’s a biggie for kids.  He’s also going to be at the festival.” The Alpine Outlaws, Gym Trix tumblers, floats, small scooters and bikes will be in the parade. Hinchcliff said anyone can participate.

The red, white and blue Independence Day for everyone includes Uncle Sam posing for pictures inside the Community Center lobby during the festival. Outside the center, there will be additional shade in the park for games, a dunk tank, bounce house and shopping with more than 20 vendors, Manale said. “What better place to come together with family, friends, community members to celebrate our nation’s independence than the Community Center,” said Louise Phipps, President of the Community Center’s Board.  Chamber Executive Director Jeff Morris said that “working with the Community Center and the Alpine Kiwanis has been wonderful.” “I grew up with 4th of July Parades in my hometown and it’s wonderful to see this Celebration of Independence happen here in Alpine as well,” Morris said.

Call (619) 659-8707 to be in the parade and (619) 659-8727 for general event information.

Vintage Alpine is a great event for the experienced wine connoisseur, but is also a wonderful Wine 101 for wine fans just getting started. Here are some pointers:

Put your senses to good use . . .

  1. Look at the color of the wine – it can reveal its age.
  2. Swirl the wine in the glass to reveal its heady aroma.
  3. Sniff it – different wines can smell fruity, earthy, nutty, floral or whatever you think it smells like.
  4. Taste the wine and let it roll around in your mouth. Is the taste like the smell? Is the body light, medium or full? Does it finish out nicely?

Attendees will be sampling premium wines from California and around the world, and will also taste the best that restaurants offer throughout San Diego County. Relaxing live music and a silent auction are also featured at the event.

Tickets are $70 in advance and $80 at the door. The event includes live music in a garden setting, a silent auction, and opportunities to meet wine and food specialists.

64th Annual Kiwanis Easter Pancake Breakfast was a HUGE Success!

 

Plenty of happy children, tasty food, decorated eggs, the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians and the Easter Bunny helped make the Alpine Kiwanis 64th Annual Carmelo Manuele Easter Pancake Breakfast lots of fun on April 1, 2018 in Alpine!

About 310 people, including a number of seniors, many families and friends in our community and at least 50 children, attended the big celebration at the Alpine Elementary School according to Alpine Kiwanis Club Member and Event Chairman, Charles Nelson. “We went through nine hundred pancakes, eleven hundred sausages, twelve gallons of fruit juice, orange and apple, ample quantities of scrambled eggs and quantities of coffee and milk for kids.”

“Many Alpine Kiwanis Club Members helped make this event successful. We arrived at the school at 5:30 am, having set up the room the day before and everyone was done with cleanup by 1:30 pm. The Easter Bunny made an appearance and many pictures were taken of children (and adults) with the bunny. There were also special activities for the children including egg and cookie decoration and a rather cheerful group of breakfast eaters. Our wonderful Granite Hills High School Key Clubbers were a big help with the children’s activities as well as helping a lot in the dining room. The proceeds from this event will support a significant amount of the work we do for children and our community,” said Nelson.

The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians is a major sponsor of this event and has a long tradition of sharing with the community as well as their brothers and sisters in Baja Norte. Their sponsorship of this Kiwanis event as well as others demonstrates that commitment to our community.

The annual Easter morning community tradition was started in 1954 by Carmelo Manuele, who was the club’s president. Manuele joined the new foothills Kiwanis club in 1951, 13 days after it started.
