Alamedans celebrated the Fourth of July on Thursday either by watching the annual Mayor's Fourth of July Parade - or participating in it. This year's parade had nearly 200 entrants and a cast of thousands that included cyclists and horseback riders, military men and business owners, politicians, a dad-powered unicorn chariot and Golden State Warriors forward Harrison Barnes. The Alamedan toured the pre-parade lineup and chatted with some parade participants about their creations; here's our video.
