Event description
Take a twilight walking tour of the beautiful neon signs in the historic city of Alameda.

About this Event

From the grandeur of the Alameda Theater neon blade sign to the nearly invisible Pop Inn, downtown Alameda boasts a fine collection of vintage neon. Meet on the sidewalk in front of the John S. Towata Flower Shop, a stunning mid-century storefront with rare green Vitrolite tiles and a raceway neon sign. This hour-long tour was developed by Alameda local, Devi L. Dahl, and winds through a quiet bungalow neighborhood and the commercial corridors of Alameda, architecture insights and historical backstories included.

7pm tour will be led by Devi L. Dahl and J. Eric Lynxwiler. 7:15 pm tour will be led by Al Barna, and Randall Ann Homan. Space is limited so book early, this event will sell out quickly.

After the Alameda tour, join us for a no-host Neon Speaks farewell gathering at the Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge.

This is an Auxiliary Event of the Neon Speaks Festival and Symposium.
