CASTRO VALLEY FORUM
Thousands showed up Saturday afternoon to celebrate the long-awaited completion of Dowtown Castro Valley’s Streetscape project.
Castro Valley Boulevard was shut down to traffic between Redwood Road and Nunes Ave. at 3 p.m. to allow the party-goers to “Meet in the Street,” stroll the new roadway, chat with merchants, and enjoy music from several stages.
“It’s great to see the community come together like this,” said Castro Valley resident Kathi Wilson-Finley as she walked along the sparkling new roadway. “To see everyone enjoying themselves makes the months of construction all worth it.”
As the sun set, a light parade took over the Boulevard with 20 floats from local schools, CVSan and the Ghilotti Construction Company. The final float featured an early appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
Wilson-Finley said she felt like she was in Disneyland.
