    Fine Art & Architecture Come Together in Vallejo Neighborhoods

    "This Daniel Webster Harrier House, built in 1870 by the founder and president of
    the Vallejo Bank, embodies the distinctive characteristics of Itallanate architecture and became a prototype for the elaborately ornamented examples of the style that came to dominate San Francisco in the late 1870s and 1880s.

    Designed by Robert Hugh Daley, who designed the First Presbyterian Church of Napa,
    as well as the Adamson house in St. Helena,
    the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places."

    July 4th Celebration, Dog Parade & Fireworks 2019: Vallejo

    By Susan C. Schena

    City of Vallejo's Mad Hatter's July 4th Waterfront Celebration

    Thursday, July 4, 2019 - 11 a.m. to Fireworks

    Vallejo's Waterfront Green Park, Vallejo, CA

    Hosted by Mad Hatter Holiday Festival:

    "The City of Vallejo’s Mad Hatter’s July 4th Waterfront Celebration is a feast for all!

    "With twenty eateries available to feast on, it’s the place for families to gather and celebrate from 11 AM – the spectacular Fireworks display over Mare Island Straits.

    "This is the Mad Hatter’s 6th year magically transforming the waterfront in a Hatter’s style for all with a full day of family adventure, performances, children’s rides and free interactive activities around the tea party.

    "Bring your kites to launch with the Gigantic American Flag Kite and other enormous kites that will be overtaking the skies before the fireworks.

    "The festival hosts two large festive food courts serving everything from a good ole Southern barbeque to an international smorgasbord cuisine of delights from Greek dishes to Mexican, Filipino, Cajun, Salvadorian and Vegan specialties along with a host of creameries and shaved Hawaiian snow cones to keep everyone cool.

    "There will be the popular watering hole of the Hatter’s Artisan Beer & Wine Pub, hosted by Vallejo’s Bay Area Stage Productions with live continual entertainment and craft beers from Napa Smith Brewery along with fine wine choices as well as crafted Apple Cider delights!

    "The 5th Annual Maritime Dog Parade kicks off in the early afternoon as the Solano Middle School Percussionist Band enters the Waterfront from the parade, and the furry wide-eyed cat mobile leads the parade. The costumed furry four-legged Maritime Parade is hosted by Haute Dogs Boutique & Barkery at 507 Georgia Street.

    "Children experiences are endless with bungee jumping, train and bull rides, an interactive reptile compound, kite flying and so much more. There will be a tented Mad Hatter Tea Party and Alice in Wonderland croquet playing with Wonderland’s Queen and a Tea Party with all the Hatter’s friends sitting around a giant Obtainium Tea Cup.

    "There will be West African Drumming along with cultural performances of Filipino and Mexican folk dancing throughout the day. Many of the parade floats will make their way down to the festival for appearances on the waterfront that’ll team up with our Hatter characters as the glowing giant kite displays decorate the skies. What’s not to like?"
